So this may be the coolest Halloween dessert you have ever set your eyes on and may definitely be one of the most disgusting ones as well. The first time I've ever seen this dessert served was on Halloween night at a costume party a few years ago. The food came out on a Sterling silver platter with lettuce placed around the edges like it was some type of delicacy for everyone to enjoy. Let me tell you, even after finding out it was a brain made from peach gelatin, nobody could even attempt to take a sliver. Since then, it was a love at first sight for me. Now it has become a family tradition every year to make this platter and bring it to my Halloween costume party, company potluck, and fright night every year. Any dessert with kind impact and memorable effect deserves to be honored every year on Halloween.

      I like the sound of that! Lol. I'm happy @Besarien to hear that you also have enjoyed making this disturbing gelatin brain mold in strawberry. That is one of my favorite flavors and always looks very disgusting! Feeding your son this Brainiac treat just before his school exam will help him with post exam worries and any troubles with studying. Mind Power!

      A mind is a terrible thing to taste. I have the brain gelatin mold. We got it a couple years back for a Halloween party. I did strawberry gelatin made with hot milk, It came out a disturbing shade of pink. You have made me want to break the mold out for a horror movie double feature night or for when my son needs some "brain food" while studying for a big exam. Black brains with jelly worms is just fabulously disgusting! The amount of food color alone makes me want to flee in terror. Very fun hub!

      I'm sure the zombies and creeps will like it. Even I find it appropriately gross.
