The following post was submitted by EPF reader Kristin. Thanks, Kristin!

The original pin — add red food coloring to white chocolate and put in a chocolate fountain for “blood fondue” at Halloween:

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!”

Oh no! It seemed like a good idea in theory, but this recipe failed harder than Ryan Seacrest high-fiving a blind man:

The Most Hilarious Kids Costumes We’ve Seen on Pinterest

It’s getting spooky over here at EPF, and it’s not just all of the scary pumpkin-flavored pins we’ve seen flooding our Pinterest wall. Nope, it’s getting close to Halloween! And we couldn’t be more excited.

We’re doing four gallery collections to celebrate. The first collection is of the funniest Halloween costumes we’ve seen for kids.

Are these pop-culture costume greatness, or should Social Services be called on the parents of these children? You be the judge.
