TruTricks Notes By Brian Swichkow: If you’re like me, when you love a television series you can really get into the storyline and it’s characters. Dexter is one of the “dark workplace dramas” that Netflix insists my girlfriend and I are addicted to. I while back I found this article showing how to make Dexter’s “Blood Slide Suckers” in anticipation for the new season of the show. Regardless is your a fan of the show or just a fan of candy, this is a fun project for Halloween or a weekend cooking project with the kids. Enjoy!
You know what’s really scary? Ghosts and vampires? Not really; they don’t exist. What really freaks me out is plagues, pestilence, serial killers, bio-hazards!
I spent the last week thinking about the boring Martha Stewart lollipops, and how they could be made more scary. I tried to brainstorm more gruesome fillings but it was just as boring as before. Then I started thinking of what’s really scary. Serial killers! I immediately thought of Dexter and his blood slides.
For any of you who aren’t familiar with the show, Dexter is about a serial killer of the same name, who works by day as a forensic analyst for the Miami police department, and by night, cleansing the city of the evil criminals who slip through the cracks of our faulty judicial system. Every serial killer has to keep his mementos and Dexter’s trophy case, consists of a box of slides, each containing one drop of blood from each victim.
For this years gruesome Halloween treat, I decided to create a trophy case of my own. I followed the same basic recipe as the Martha one, but I cut mine in half since the slides are much smaller and thinner then her lollipops. Here’s the recipe and directions with a few of my own small changes.
