Have you seen these adorable Dexter Blood Slide lollipops from the fantastic Andrea over at Forkable? Made of melted sugar poured and cut to look like glass microscope slides, a touch of red food coloring gives this wicked candy the perfect vibrant Dexter specimen splash.
As Andrea nicely sums up from the show,
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.
Visit Forkable for the complete instructions and step-by-step photos for creating your own candy blood slides this Halloween. Like last year’s Broken Glass cupcakes, using a silicone baking mat will make your life easier, as will lightly scoring the candy “glass” before it fully hardens.
If you feel like going all out, consider this guide to creating a Dexter Kill Room from There’s Something About Kate. It would be a fabulous backdrop if you decided to throw a Dexter-themed Halloween party. Just add a few rum drinks and medianoches and you’ll have the coolest kill room in Miami.
And since we’re this far down the rabbit hole to having a Dexter Halloween, darlings, why not talk your friends into going as a Dexter group costume? The cast is a colorful, easily recognizable bunch, and someone would make my entire Halloween if they went as
dead Darla zombie Rita. Just remember to play nice and don’t squabble over who gets to be Dexter.
Someone could get wind up going for a boat ride.
