American Horror Story Freak Show Bloody Popcorn

Fall is coming up soon and my favorite holiday, Halloween, is in the fall. With a new season of American Horror Story starting soon I thought it was the perfect time to do something horror related. My husband and I got American Horror Story: Freak Show to watch which gave me this idea.
In 2014 at Comic-Con bloody popcorn was given out to promote Freak Show. So I decided to make my own version It really is delicious but it's also very sweet.

What You Will Need
10 cups of air popped popcorn  (This can be store bought or homemade)
10 0z bag of red candy melts
A bowl with a lid
A spoon
A 12×18 pan
Parchment paper

Step One
Melt your candy melts. There are a couple of different ways to do this.
1. Pour them in a microwave safe bowl. Then microwave for one minute. Then take them out and stir them. Put them back in the microwave for 30 seconds. Take it out and stir. Repeat until it can be poured over the popcorn.
2. For this method you'll need two pans, one bigger one smaller. Fill the bigger pan full of water. Pour the candy melts in the smaller pan. Get the water boiling and then set the smaller one so it's floating in the water. Stir the candy melts

Step Two
Once your candy melts have melted pour them over your popcorn. You'll want to alternate between shaking and stirring to make sure all of the popcorn is covered.

Step Three
Lay parchment paper on the bottom of the pan. Spread the popcorn over the bottom of the pan.

Step Four
You're going to want to leave the popcorn on the counter so the candy can set. DO NOT put it in the fridge. This will make the popcorn soggy.
