How to make your own Zombie Love Brains Chocolate Snacks!Date: February 16,2012
As a Valentine’s Day surprise for Mousetermind (Miss Kitty’s boyfriend) made these little “brains” out of chocolate & cherry coulis.
I got the mold from ebay – I searched for “silicone brain ice cube mold tray”. Here is a link to an example of what you would look for on ebay:
Some tips I learned while making these:
1. Make sure you are melting the chocolate using a proper method (don’t microwave it etc)
2. Tint the white chocolate with red food colouring
3. If you don’t have cherry coulis, buy a can of cherry pie filling – scoop two tablespoons of the goo / sauce into a small cup. *Add only A FEW DROPS of water at a time – you don’t want it too runny otherwise it wont stick to the chocolate as well as mine did*
4. Coat the brains on a plate or board & give it a few minutes for the excess cherry goo to drip off, then transfer to packaging after. I used Halloween cupcake liners
I bought the white ‘take out’ style box from Micheals for around $3 and created the label using the “Chiller” font in Word, then trimmed coloured card stock with scrapbooking scissors and stuck in on with glue. I filled the inside of the box with white shredded tissue paper that I got at the dollar store – just enough to cover the bottom and show the goodies in the little window of the box. Careful not to put too much though; I found too much stuffing in the box it would keep getting stuck to the brains inside the box.
