Halloween Mulled Blood Bags

Halloween Party Food

Our wine rack is full of wine, mostly red wine so I decided to make some mulled blood (wine) for Halloween as Monica had bought these fun blood bags for me. So many people came up to me to tell me how much they loved the mulled blood and the blood bag way of drinking! Mulled wine is actually ideal for the slow cooker as it never gets hot enough to really boil the alcohol off and you can also do this in the Thermomix. I made the mulled blood the day before the party and served it chilled. And if you're serving this to kids you can sub the red wine for grape juice.
