- Two 6-ounce boxes gelatin, preferably peach and watermelon
- 1 3/4 Cup boiling water
- 3/4 Cups cold water
- 9 Ounces fat-free evaporated milk
- 15 drops red food coloring
- 15 drops green food coloring
- 15 drops blue food coloring
Before each use, wash the mold with warm soapy water and a soft cloth or sponge. Spray or smear the inside of the mold with a small amount of vegetable oil, then wipe out the excess.
Put the gelatin mix in a large bowl and add the boiling water. Stir about 2 minutes until the mix is dissolved. Stir in the cold water. Stir in the evaporated milk and food coloring.
Adjust coloring until it is the perfect pinkish-gray and stir. Pour the mixture in the brain mold, stopping about ¼ inch from the top. Place the brain mold in a shallow bowl so it will sit level, and refrigerate overnight.
To remove the brain, shake the mold gently until the gelatin loosens. Place a flat plate upside down over the open side of the mold, then flip the mold and the plate together. Lift the mold off, leaving the brain on the plate.
