Despite the fact that I am a huge fan of Halloween and Halloween treats, I was disturbingly inspired to create these Halloween bleeding brain treats by Game Of Thrones.
I just started watching it and now I understand that the timing could not have been better. It sure does give Halloween a run for its money…Blooddyyy.
I am not a fan of horror or anything violence, which is why it took me 7 years to join what seems to the madness of the show. As a result, Casper the friendly ghost was swallowed by a giant dragon and my life will never be the same again….
At the risk of shooting my self in the foot (appropriate fraise I would say) I have to admit that these brains look rather gross.
I still ate it. My lips mouth and teeth got all red and my eyes were shining from sugar overload.
So it turned out better than I had hoped.
I used these as cupcakes topper, however, you can have them as plain treas, maybe even Vodka Jello shots.
I used White Chocolate Ganache for the filling but feel free to use anything you may think be red and gross. (Vodka Jello shots, Custard, Jam).
How to make Blood Brains, Halloween Treats
You will need:
- Using a piece of paper towel spread a little of shortening on the surface of the mold. This will allow the Chocolate to come out of the mold easily.
- Melt the candy melts and drop a teaspoon of the melted candy in the center of the mold. With the back of the teaspoon, spread the candy melt to create a thin layer. Place the mold in the freezer for 5-10 minutes.
3. Pour the cooled Chocolate Ganache 3/4 full. Place the almost full molds in the freezer to set for about an hour.
4. Make sure that the red Ganache had set. Drop a teaspoon amount of melted candy on top of the red Ganache.
5. Using a small spatula or a butter knife, spread the candy melt to create an even layer that will cover the red Ganache.
6. Clean the space between the molds with a paper towel. Place in the freezer for about 30 minutes to be set.
7. Remove mold from the freezer and turn it over to release the “brains”.
8. Use a flat and small brush dipped in red food coloring to paint the “brain”: The color will not set and will get a smeared bloody look.
- To create the open piece, use a fondant knife and gently while holding it in one hand cut through it. It does not need to be symmetric.
- To create a symmetric hole, take a piping tip # 1 and warm it using a lighter. Place the warmed tip on the mold and allow it to be melted.
- Store the molds in the freezer until ready to be eaten. For the best effect, allow it to be at room temperature.
- I got the Molds from Micheals for pretty cheap. Below you can find other options for other molds.
