Picture of popcorn ball brains
These popcorn ball brains are super easy to make, and great bite size dessert for a Halloween party! Plus, they're nice and cheap to make. :D

I like that they're both cute and a little gory.

( I thought I was the first person that had come up with popcorn ball brains. I was so excited! But it turns out I'm not. :P )

Step 1: Ingredients + tools

Picture of ingredients + tools
  • 10.5 bag of mini marshmallows
  • 3 tablespoons of butter
  • 6 cups of popcorn 
  • red food coloring
I cooked the popcorn in a pan on the stove and salted it really well. The salt is nice against all the sweet. :D When measuring the popcorn, push it down a little in the measuring cup.

  • Crisco, for coating your hands
  • a small paintbrush
  • parchment or wax paper

Thanks for posting this one, they look great. Just one thing, pink is close, but I think brains should be grey, as in "the grey matter". I'll make mine pink like yours though. :-)
