With the return of the adorably spooky iZombie tonight, I couldn't help but use the excuse to whip up just the right snack for the premiere. I stumbled upon this recipe for Rice Krispy Treat Brains on Left Brain Craft Brain, and thought they'd be just the ticket -- though I browned my butter before melting my marshmallows, and finished them off -- in true Liv Moore fashion -- with Sriracha.
Browned Butter Sriracha Rice Krispy Treat Brains
3 T. butter
1 10 oz. bag mini marshmallows
Red food coloring
6 cups Rice Krispies cereal
Non-stick cooking spray
Melt butter in a pot over medium heat until nicely browned. Add marshmallows and heat until melted, stirring frequently. Add a few drops of red food coloring for a nice brain color.
Add the cereal and stir until evenly coated with the marshmallow / butter mix.
While mixture is still warm, spray your hands with non-stick spray and scoop up about 1/4 cup of marshmallow coated cereal. Form into a ball, then flatten a bit and give it a brain like indent with a spray coated knife. Set finished brain onto a parchment or wax paper covered baking sheet.
Let brains cool and then drizzle with Sriracha to give them that gorey brain look.
Makes 12-16 brains, depending upon how big you made them. Store in an air-tight container for 1-2 days.
