Brains for dinner

I’m speaking of course of jello brains.  In honor of Halloween I made a jello brain as a side dish and the kids loved it!  I bought a jello brain mold about 6 weeks ago when there was a special offer to just pay shipping of $2.95.  Here is the recipe we used to make our yummy cerebral concoction.


one brain mold

2 packages of jello orange flavored gelatin (6 oz each)

3/4 c cold water

1 3/4 c boiling water

non-stick cooking spray

Spray your mold with cooking spray.  Add boiling water to your gelatin mix in a large bowl and whisk until disolved.  Add your cold water and stir to combine.  Pour jello into mold and refrigerate for 2-3 hours until firm.  When ready to serve submerge mold in warm water for a couple of minutes and then invert onto a serving plate. 

The texture of this jello is thicker than you may be used to, but it is quite a creepy treat.

Happy Halloween!
