A little food coloring goes a long way to make these sweet little brains come to life.
Melt the butter in a pot over medium heat. Add marshmallows and stir until melted. Add a few drops of red food coloring for a soft pink, brain-like color.2.
Add in the rice cereal and stir until it's evenly coated with the marshmallow and butter mix.3.
While mixture is still warm, spray your hands with non-stick spray and scoop up about ¼ cup of marshmallow-coated cereal. Form it into a ball, then flatten it a bit and give it a brain-like an indent in the middle. Place the shaped treat on a baking tray coated with non-stick spray. Repeat until all the cereal is used up.4.
Let the brains cool and then add a few lines red gel icing to form sweet-looking veins.5.
This recipe makes 12-16 brains, depending on how big you make them. They can be stored for up to 2 days in an air-tight container.
