Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • One (10 ounce) bag of mini marshmallows
  • 6 cups rice crispy cereal
  • red food coloring
  • red gel icing
  • non-stick cooking spray
  • Chef notes

    A little food coloring goes a long way to make these sweet little brains come to life. 

    Preparation

    1.

     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.
