Directions

  1. Lightly oil a brain-shaped gelatin mold.
  2. Stir the peach gelatin mix with boiling water in a bowl to dissolve the gelatin. Allow to cool to room temperature, about 20 minutes. Mix in the evaporated milk and peach schnapps; pour into the prepared mold. Refrigerate until set, 4 to 6 hours.
  3. To decorate, dip the mold in very warm water (don't let the water enter the top of the mold) to loosen; invert the mold on a serving platter and lift to leave the brain in place. Mix blue and red food coloring in a small bowl with 2 teaspoons of water. Use a small clean paintbrush to paint the coloring into the grooves of the brain. Return the brain to the refrigerator until the food coloring sets. Serve cold.

Made this for our party last night...huge hit...everyone loved it! Cool gross factor (served it with a small ice cream scoop) but tasted yummy...should have made two of them. Only thing I changed, I put 1 cup of schnapps and 1/2 cup peach flavored vodka for alittle bit more punch.

This was a huge win at my adult halloween party! Creepy and cool. I walked around the party with the brain on a silver platter and served slices to my party-goers. It wasn't sticky or slimy so you could use your fingers. Unlike a lot of jello shots, this actually tasted great.

The finishing result was awesome, the brain was sturdy and looked really good! And it tasted good too, I used peach jello and it tasted like peaches and cream with the evaporated milk. I would like to play around with this recipe and try out new and gory things in the future!

We substituted strawberry jello instead of peach, and used a full pint of peach schnapps. It was fully gelled in approximately 5 hours, and tasted fantastic!

Sliced the brain with a big chef knife for effect. Tasted great!

Worked like a charm! I made a non-alcoholic version of this, substituting water for the alcohol. We used it for a school haunted house - kids thought this was awesome! Set up really well and looked gross on the table.
