How fun and spooky are these ridiculously easy, Vampire Blood Strawberry Floats? Super simple, super fun and edible blood, making for a fun treat anytime.
This post/recipe was created for #HalloweenTreatsWeek! I was sent samples by some of the sponsor companies but as always opinions are 100% mine.
It’s day 3 of #HalloweenTreatsWeek, and I’ve brought along these delicious but slightly gory Vampire Blood Strawberry Floats.
These are literally a basic, but very delicious Strawberry Float, with homemade edible vampire blood.
They are so much fun at a teen party which was when we last made them.
Now we have a toddler and he just liked how it all tasted and didn’t really see them as gory. Not a bad thing.
It really just comes down to the homemade edible blood, because the rest of this fun treat is pretty standard.
A simple strawberry float, that could be changed to be almost anything berry – want Cherry? That’ll work too!
Just a really easy, but fun Halloween Treat that appeals to almost any age.
You can definitely get a bit more gory and use more blood. When we made these the first time, we had the blood dripping down the glass and covering a lot of the top of the float.
I didn’t do that this time, because it was a treat for Carsyn and as I’ve mentioned before, he is not into spooky or scary. But we still like to do fun and festive things, so this was perfect.
