Here's a Halloween recipe that
is perfect for a gory Halloween party! We serve this to our
guests when we have a "Vampire's Ball" Halloween party and
for our annual
Friday the 13th party.
To make Blood Splattered
pop-corn, just pop-up a batch of
plain, unseasoned pop-corn. Let pop-corn cool before
applying the blood topping.
Bowl of unseasoned Pop-Corn
1/2 - Stick of Butter or
1 - Teaspoon Red
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
Caution - Since a fairly large amount of coloring
is needed to get the color of blood, your tongue and hands will
get colored 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.
