      Title: Penn & teller dessert
 Categories: Desserts, Halloween
      Yield: 1 Servings
 
           Red jello mix
           Cool whip
           Karo syrup
           Dk red wine or grape juice
 
  Here is the outline for something I saw this morning on Geraldo (by
  accident) that was done by Penn & Teller. It's more of a macabre
  show-off desert, but I laughed my ass off when I saw it.
  
  Okay, start off by making some Jell-O, preferably strawberry or
  cherry or some other flavor that's naturally red. But, use two to
  three times as much Jell-O mix as you normally would, to thicken up
  the consistency. After this is mixed, stir in some cool whip, and
  pour it into your favorite standard party mold (the dome kind would
  be good).
  
  Get a CLEAN plastic bag (inside and out) and place in it some Karo
  syrup. Now add something like a very dark red wine, or grape juice.
  What you want is a semi-thick VERY dark red (opaque) liquid which
  looks not unlike blood. Starting to get the picture yet?
  
  Okay, now place this bag in the mold, so that the bag is still
  floating on top.  Keep in mind that you want the Jell-O plus the bag
  to completely fill the mold, but have a level surface, as this thing
  is going to flip over later on.  Put it in the fridge, and allow it
  to chill and set.
  
  When you take it out of the refrigerator, you should decorate it a
  little. Try drizeling some chocolate glaze on top and poping a couple
  of strawberries or cherries on top of this. Allow to set if
  necessary, and then bring it out to your dinner guests.
  
  At this point, your dinner guests will probably be oo'ing and ah'ing
  over this rather nice dessert you've brought out to them. Make sure
  you've got that big pointy butcher knife in one hand as you set this
  beauty down on the table.
  
  Now you get to play Norman Bates:  cut into the side of this, making
  sure you go deep enough to cut into the bag real wide. As you
  continue to cut out a piece of the geltin mold, the bag will leak
  into this, and your bewildered guests will think your dessert is
  _BLEEDING_. Not to disappoint them, cut out one of these bloody
  pieces of geletin and plop it down on a plate.  If you're lucky, it
  will look like a recently-extracted body organ.
  
  Yes, this is gross.  Yes, I wouldn't bring this to the typical dinner
  party.  Yes, I probably have a *very* warped sense of humor. But, I
  laughed quite loudly when I saw this being done by Penn & Teller. At
  the very least, it might be fun for a Halloween party...
  :-)
