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

  • 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
<p>Look like something I will make this weekend! :)</p>
This is awesome I really wanna try it for the school so mine will be the best
Thanks for posting this one, they look great. Just one thing, pink is close, but I think brains should be grey, as in &quot;the grey matter&quot;. I'll make mine pink like yours though. :-) <br>
Yum! I will be making these ...they look awesome!
Wow! These look great! =D
Neat, what a fun Halloween project to do with a child. Delicious and creepy!! Thanks for posting.
They look so delicious!
