Brain Jello Mold Recipe Ingredients:
- Three large, 6 ounce boxes of peach or watermelon flavored gelatin for flesh toned color.
- One 12 ounce can of lite evaporated skimmed milk (99.5% fat free). No other milk will work!
- Oil Cooking Spray (to lubricate the plastic mold)
- Red or Green Food Coloring
- Three ½ cups of water(2 ½ cups boiled, 1 cup cold)
Spray a small amount of vegetable oil inside of the cavity of the plastic mold. Wipe off any excess oil.
- Place gelatin from the boxes into a large bowl and add 2 ½ cups of boiling water. Stir gelatin with a whisk until it is completely dissolved.
- Stir in one cup of cold water.
- Add skimmed milk and stir for two minutes. (If a clear brain is desired, leave out the skimmed milk and add an additional 1 ½ cups of cold water)
- Add a few drops of red food coloring to produce the flesh tone color, re-stir. You can also add green to make it a bit more grayish.
- Pour gelatin mixture into the plastic brain mold.
- Place mold in fridge carefully. You can wrap a towel around the bottom of the mold to keep the mold upright.
- Refrigerator overnight.
Extracting the Jello Brain From the Mold:
*Carefully shake the mold until the gelatin is loosened from the plastic mold.
* Put on a cooking glove, and place the open palm of your hand on the top of the gelatin, and turn the mold over.
* Shake the mold again.
* Continue to carefully shake the mold until the brain plops out onto your gloved hand.
* Place mold onto a plate or a platter.
* Cover the mold with a plastic food wrap and return the mold to the refrigerator until you are ready to put it on display and serve it.
