"This spooky Halloween treat is scarily realistic! A non-alcoholic version may also be made for the kiddies by substituting the peach schnapps with water."

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  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.

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!

so easy to make and sooo good!

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 ...

I made several changes: 1) used whipped cream vodka in place of schnapps, 2) used a 5 oz can of evap. milk, juice from a small container of peach chunks, and topped up to 1 1/2 cups with half a...

Big hit but makes a LOT of jello shooter. Worth making even though it wasn't finished. Make sure you have lots of plastic shooter glasses to spoon it into. I tinted the peach jello with a couple...
