The brain have a yummy texture, they’re super crispy and chewy. Also, the sweet marshmallow flavours come through nicely.

They look pretty realistic and a few people were a little grossed out by it, exactly what you want in a Halloween treat!

1. Ingredients

The recipe calls for unsalted butter, but you can use salted butter and omit the extra 1/2 tsp of salt. With the marshmallows, you can use pink or white marshmallows. 

2. Equipment

You need a small pot and a heat proof bowl to use as a Bain-Marie. You also need a whisk, a butter knife and a toothpick.

3. Mixing the rice bubbles

When mixing the rice bubbles with the marshmallow mixture, you need to mix it while the marshmallow mixture is still very hot. You also need to mix the rice bubbles and marshmallow mixture very quickly before the marshmallow mixture begins to solidify. 

4. Shaping the brains

After you have mixed the Rice Bubbles with the marshmallow mixture, it is better to let it cool for a while so that it’s not as sticky when you shape them. Remember to oil your hands, it’ll make shaping them a lot easier. You can also oil two spoons to make it easier to scoop it up before shaping.
