Tonight’s the big night for the season premier of Walking Dead. Not only that, we’re only two weeks from Halloween.
Whether you are preparing your own, or purchasing, “brain food” is the perfect pairing for your zombie themed parties.
You simply can’t go wrong with a blood stained brain cake. The instructions are pretty simple and can be found at instructables.
If that seems like too much work, you can go the Jell-O mold route.
It’s pretty cheap at only $6.99. If making Jell-O is way over your head, just pour water or red juice into the mold, freeze it and float it in a bowl of fruit punch.
Do you have mad knife skills? If so, you can try your hand at making a brain from a watermelon.
Just don’t attempt if your knife skills are just so so. No one wants actual blood on their zombie brain food.
A bowl of brain-shaped walnuts is always a good idea. Walnuts are said to increase brain function, so it’s possible that walnuts can keep a zombie-outbreak at bay. Or if you want to be really crafty, you can push the walnut into chocolate skull molds.
Not so crafty but still love this idea? Just buy them from etsy.
Life sized gummy brain? Yes please.
Or, also at Perpetual Kid, is an ice cube mold. Endless possibilities here. Sure you can make ice, but you can also use this as a chocolate mold or a mini jello mold. This is a steal at $8.99 since you can use it over and over again.
If you want to go for a more “meaty” zip for your brain, you could always make a brain shaped meatloaf. For egg-stra appeal, throw two hard boiled eggs for eyes underneath the frontal lobe. Don’t know how to make meatloaf? Here’s a decent recipe. For more affect, pour on ketchup or bbq strategically about fifteen minutes before taking it out of the oven to make it extra bloody.
But what about drinks? There’s about a dozen or so recipes out there for shots names “Bloody Brains” or something to that affect. The one that made me spew brain chunks in college though was called a bloody monkey brain. Here’s the closest recipe I can find.
Lastly, if none of this is good enough for you more adventurous types, there are actual animal brains that you can eat boiled, fried, or however you like. Just be advised that I personally think you are sick and twisted and real brains taste like gritty dog chow.
On a final note, if you eat brains, shouldn’t you get smarter?
