These Brain Molds Make Super Fun Halloween Cake Pops
They've already sold out once on Amazon, so order now!
We love a cute (and a little bit scary) treat to serve on Halloween night. Halloween cupcakes, skeleton cookies, eyeball truffles — we've tried them all. This year we're trying something different: Cake Pop Brains.
What we love most about these cake pops is how easy it is to get the shape right. To make the perfect 2-inch brains, we ordered silicone molds on Amazon. The molds each have four, 2-inch brains and come in a set of three, so you can make a dozen brains at a time. Unlike traditional round cake pops that require tedious molding, dipping and getting the popsicle stick just right, these cake pops can be served more like tea cakes on a platter, since they don't have sticks attached.
Making the brains is simple. Brush melted ruby chocolate (you can find this in the candy aisle at your local grocery store) into the sides of the mold. Allow to harden. Fill with the cake mixture and jam and allow to cool again. To finish, seal the brain with additional melted ruby chocolate on top of the cake, and cool.
The silicone material makes it easy to pop the brains out onto a platter and serve at your Halloween party. We like breaking one open to reveal the gooey inside and add a bit of drama to the display. When the party's over, you can simply pop the molds into the dishwasher with the rest of your supplies, making cleanup a breeze.
Finally, at around $12 for the set of three, these molds are an affordable investment for a fun Halloween project to do with kids. These molds have already sold out on Amazon once, so we recommend placing your order today so they arrive in time for October.
