Don’t leave the eyeballs attached. We don’t want this to get gross.
- 16-oz. bag mini marshmallows
- 7 cups Rice Krispies
- 2 tbsp. butter
- 6 drops red food coloring
- Red food gel
- (Not your blood, silly! You don’t want to pass out. Grab a neighborhood kid and chop off his finger.)
- Nonstick cooking spray
- Parchment paper
Lay out a sheet of parchment to place brains on to cool.
Melt butter in a pot over medium low heat. Add marshmallows and melt completely, stirring constantly to prevent burning.
Add red food coloring. Mix well.
Add Rice Krispies. Stir to coat completely. Let them cool a bit.
Coat hands with cooking spray. Put about 3⁄4 to 1 cup of marshmallow-covered Rice Krispies into the palm of your hand and form into a ball.
Press the ball down on the parchment to make into a brain shape.
Oil the handle of a large spoon and lightly press into the top of the ball to create a line to separate the hemispheres.
Repeat to use up all the Rice Krispies.
When the brains have cooled, pipe blood vessels on with food gel. Let gel dry completely.
