I thought we could share Halloween recipes here for our parties next week. Look what I found on the internet, this looks sooooo cool! Sure, I am going to make one on Monday (I found the mold on eBay).
Jell-O Brain Mold
6 small or 3 large boxes of watermelon (works best) or peach Jell-O
1 can light or non-fat evaporated milk*
2 1/2 cups boiling water
1 cup cold water
Blue and red food colors
Spray inside of the mold with a non-flavored cooking spray (like Pam).
Dissolve Jell-o in 2 1/2 cups of boiling water. Add 1 cup cold water and evaporated milk. Add food color to desired color (about 5 drops). Pour in mold and chill until set.
*Donít use regular milk in place of the non-fat evaporated milk Ė itís wonít be as cloudy and has a tendency to curdle or separate in this type of recipe. Donít use whole evaporated milk, either, since it may also curdle.
About 15 drops each of red, green, and blue will make a realistic brain color of gray.
Fill the mold about 1/2 full and chill until set. Using a spoon or ice cream scoop, make a baseball-sized hole in the center of the Jell-o, being careful to leave at least 1/2-1-inch of Jell-o between the hole and the mold. Fill the hole with pureed and strained raspberries or strawberries. Spoon in enough Jell-o to barely cover and seal the pureed fruit and chill until set. Add another thin layer of Jell-o and again chill until set. Then add the remaining Jell-o and chill until set. When you cut into the brain, the fruit "blood" will come oozing out.
