Brain Hemorrhage Bites

Brain eating zombies are just the thing this year and these delicious brain hemorrhage gumdrop bites will be the hit of your gruesome eerie edibles party table!
This recipe is a variation of Brain Hemorrhage gumdrops that we saw here on Hungry Happenings. I think we liked how theirs came out better, so be sure to check them out!

You’ll Need:
2 envelopes Knox unflavored gelatin
1/4 cup cold water
1/4 tsp Flavoring Oil (any flavor you want)

6 Tbs water
1 cup sugar
about 3 drops each red food coloring
more sugar for coating, about 1/2 cup

Brain Mold

Combine gelatin and 1/4 cup of cold water in a small bowl, stir briefly and then set aside for 2 minutes.

While that is setting, combine water with sugar in a small saucepan over medium heat and let it simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat, let it cool a moment or two and then pour the hot syrup mixture into the gelatin, stirring until completely dissolved.
Add gelatin mixture to syrup, and stir until completely dissolved.

Pour into a brain mold that has been sprayed with NON-Stick Spray. Wait about 20 Minutes, then carefully plunge a toothpick that has been dipped in red food coloring into the center of each “brain”, skewering it in a round motion to spread the hemorrhage! If you don’t wait your entire brain will turn bright red.

Chill for about 2 hours before inverting onto a plate and then rolling in sugar.

Makes 8 Brains.
