Halloween Special: Blood Clot Brains

 
Some of us grew up enjoying a special confection fare called rice krispy treats. If some of you can recall, there were 2 main varieties. One was made from chocolate and rice krispies wrapped in a brown packaging, and another from rice krispies and marshmallows in a bluish turquoise packaging. If these bars of delight are imprinted in your memories, then this is the perfect Halloween snack for you.

The strawberry preserve used as blood clots can be replaced as well. On the same note, you can also use solely white marshmallows and play around with the food colouring. Just ensure that you don’t use too much colouring as the hue they produce can be very very stark.

Some examples will be using green food coloring and blackcurrant preserve to make hemorrhaged martian brains. Or what about using blue food colouring and omitting the preserve to create oxygen deprived brains? Whichever fits the mood of your Halloween party, go for it. 

Ingredients:
2 cup marshmallows* (I’m using a mix of white and pink)
3 cups rice krispies (you could use unsalted plain popcorn too)
1 tbsp (15 g) unsalted butter
Strawberry preserve for decorating
