To make Blood Splattered pop-corn, just pop-up a batch of plain, unseasoned pop-corn. Let popcorn cool before applying the blood topping.

Ingredients:•1 Bowl of unseasoned popcorn
•1/2 stick of butter or margarine
•1 teaspoon Red Icing Color (approximate)

Directions:
For the topping, slowly heat half a stick of butter or margarine in a small sauce pan, or microwave it on the lowest setting until it is fully melted. Do not allow the butter to boil or burn. Once the butter is melted, remove it from the heat and transfer it into a mixing bowl.


Slowly add just enough red paste food coloring, also called Icing Color, which is available at most craft or cake decorating supply stores, to turn the butter a nice shade of blood red. One teaspoon of Icing Color for every one stick of butter. While you could use regular liquid food color, it takes much more to get the desired color and it tends to stain much more. Using a wire whisk, mix the butter and coloring until it is thoroughly combined.


Slowly pour a small amount of the bloody butter over the pop-corn and then gently toss it with a large spoon. Repeat until the pop-corn looks as though its been splattered, not soaked, with blood. Serve in an appropriate serving bowl.


Caution – Since a fairly large amount of coloring is needed to get the color of blood, your tongue and hands will get red when eating this treat. Have plenty of napkins and towelettes available and be sure to warn your guests not to wipe their hands on your furniture, themselves, etc
