Total Time: 20 minutes
Servings: 12


  • tablespoon  unsalted butter
  • One 10  oz. bag mini marshmallows
  • Red food coloring
  • cups  Rice Krispies cereal
  • Non-stick cooking spray
  • Red gel icing


  • Melt butter in a pot over medium heat. You can also melt the butter in the microwave. Add marshmallows and heat until marshmallows are melted, stirring frequently. Add a few drops of red food coloring so the butter marshmallow mixture turns the color of a brain, slightly pink.
  • Add the cereal and stir until evenly coated with the marshmallow / butter mix.
  • 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 knife. Coat the knife in non-stick spray to make it easy to make the indents without the knife sticking. Set finished brain onto a parchment or wax paper covered baking sheet.
  • Let brains cool, about 20-30 minutes, and then drizzle with red gel icing to give them that gorey brain look.
  • Makes 12-16 brains, depending upon how big you made them. They can be stored in an airtight container for up to 2 days.From Left Brain Craft Brain
