The original pin — add red food coloring to white chocolate and put in a chocolate fountain for “blood fondue” at Halloween:
And the Epic Pinterest Fail:
Says Kristin: “I really wanted a fun halloween party this year … I thought the kids would get a kick out of edible chocolate blood! Bought ingredients, mixed, prepared, and it immediately began to fail. The chocolate wouldn’t come though the fountain, so I manually tried to twist it to help it get started, and there was pink chocolate everywhere! I couldn’t get it that deep red color either. The kids wouldn’t eat it … The adults wouldn’t eat it! I thought it’d be a little cheaper than dipping chocolate, but it actually cost more and was a complete waste. Fail!”
