  • 3 T. butter
  • 1 10 oz. bag mini marshmallows
  • Red food coloring
  • 6 cups Rice Krispies cereal
  • Non-stick cooking spray
  • Red gel icing
  1. Melt butter in a pot over medium heat (you can do this in the microwave too). Add marshmallows and heat until melted, stirring frequently. Add a few drops of red food coloring for a nice brain color.
  2. Add the cereal and stir until evenly coated with the marshmallow / butter mix.
  3. While mixture is still warm, spray your hands with non-stick spray and scoop up about 1/4 cup of marshmallow coated cereal. Form into a ball, then flatten a bit and give it a brain like indent with a spray coated knife. Set finished brain onto a parchment or wax paper covered baking sheet.
  4. Let brains cool and then drizzle with red gel icing to give them that gorey brain look.
  5. Makes 12-16 brains, depending upon how big you made them. Store in an air-tight container for 1-2 days.
