Bleeding Brain Jello Mold Recipe
- 5 oz. 100-Proof Vodka
- 5 oz. Hazelnut Liqueur
- 5 oz. Raspberry Liqueur
- 3 Envelopes of Knox® Unflavored Gelatin
- 1 ½ Cups of Boiling Water
- 14 oz. Sweetened Condensed Milk
- Raspberry Pie Filling
- Zombie Brain Gelatin Mold
If you don't have 100 proof (50% alcohol by volume) vodka, you can use 80 proof (40% abv) vodka.
Note: Three envelopes of Knox® original gelatine is about three tablespoons of unflavored gelatin.
Combine Vodka, Gelatin and Boiling Water
Pour vodka into a bowl or container. Sprinkle the gelatin over the vodka. Let it stand for about three minutes.
In a pan, boil 1 ½ cups of water and pour it into the gelatin mixture. Mix well until the gelatin dissolves completely.
Add Liqueurs and Condensed Milk
Once the gelatin is dissolved, pour hazelnut liqueur, raspberry liqueur and the sweetened condensed milk. Stir well until everything is mixed completely.
Preparing the Brain Gelatin Mold
Wash and dry the brain mold. Spray the inside of the brain mold with a small amount of vegetable oil. Wipe any excess oil. Place the mold in a bowl to keep it level.
Note: I like to place a towel between the brain mold and the bowl so the mold won't move when transporting it.
Fill Mold Half Way and Let It Set
Fill the brain mold half way with the gelatin mixture. Place the mold in the refrigerator for about 20 minutes to let it cool. Remove the brain mold from the refrigerator and place it in the freezer for about 45 minutes or until the gelatin is firm.
Add the Raspberry Filling
Once the gelatin is firm, scoop out a small amount of gelatin from the center of the brain. Be careful not to remove too much gelatin.
Spoon the raspberry pie filling into the center of the mold. Make sure that the filling does not reach the walls of the brain mold. Use as much raspberry filling as you like.
Note: I used a lot of raspberry filling on purpose to make a more drastic bleeding effect, but you don't have to add a lot.
Fill the Brain Mold and Refrigerate
Pour the remaining gelatin mixture over the raspberry pie filling. Refrigerate the brain mold overnight or until firm.
Remove Brain and Garnish
Once the brain is firm, place a flat plate upside down over the open side of the mold, then flip the mold and plate together. Lift the mold off, leaving the brain on the plate.
Garnishing the brain is optional. You can garnish it with gummy worms, hazelnuts, strawberry syrup, raspberry syrup, etc.
