Halloween Drinks

From the Recipe Shoebox.

Dracula's Drink
2 Tbsp corn syrup
red food coloring

clear drinking glass (with stem is preferable)

The Instructions:

Place corn syrup on small plate and mix in red food coloring to desired shade of red. Tip rim of glass into the corn syrup.

Stand right side up and let rest for 20 minutes. The corn syrup will drip down slowly giving it the dripping "blood" effect.

The corn syrup will get a little more solid so that it's not quite so sticky. This can be messy if you have too much corn syrup dripping down the glass, because then you have no where to put your fingers when drinking! (I know this from experience).

Serve with a grape juice or your favorite Halloween drink.

Jack-o-Lantern Smoothie
1 29 oz can peaches, drained
4 cartons of plain or peach/apricot yogurt
1/2 c orange juice
2-3 Tbsp melted dark chocolate
clear cups

OR your favorite orange smoothie recipe

The Directions:

Use the melted chocolate to draw faces on the inside of the cups. Use the back of a knife to do this. (Or if you have a clean small paint brush that would be much easier.) Don't put too much chocolate on the tip of the knife or it may drip into the bottom of your cup.
When you're done making your faces, place cups in the fridge so the chocolate will set.

Mix all the remaining ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
Pour into the cups. If you have green straws it would be like the stem of the pumpkin.
