Some mustaches say “I’m a distinguished gentleman of discerning tastes.” Others say “I’m going to tie a damsel to some train tracks before being thwarted by a man with a lasso.” This mustache says “I can’t grow a mustache, but I really like candy that tastes like cola,” and that’s perfectly okay in my book.

Ghosts, skeletons and mummies aren’t really scary these days. But serial killers, those are scary! Especially the super psychotic ones with a ton of tricks up their sleeves. If you watch Dexter religiously, you already know what these are. If you don’t, let us fill you in.
Dexter is a show…about a guy…named Dexter…that works as a blood splatter analyst for the Miami Police Department by day and is a notorious serial killer by night. Every serial killer needs to keep odd mementos from their victims, and Dexter‘s trophy case happens to be a box of slides containing a drop of blood from each victim.
These edible slides make a disturbingly awesome Halloween treat. They are also easy and cheap to make. Nothing more than a little sugar, corn syrup, and red food coloring. For detailed instructions, download the pdf for Dexter Blood Slide Suckers.
The creator of this fun dessert wanted a guilt free way to eat pie during the day. The main complaint was th they didn’t want to be stuck with the guilt that comes a long with an entire slice (oh boy), but instead, decided to collaborate the bitesizeness of a lollipop with the flavor of and texture of our favorite pie variations. What was formed was miniature pie lollipops in blackberry, pumpkin, apple and banana flavors. Apparently these run under 50 calories each, and you can make a batch of them and fridge them up for later. Eat on!
