Melba's Bleeding Brain Halloween Gelatin Mold Recipe. This peach flavored panna cotta gelatin brain bleeds delicious raspberry filling. It's a perfect ghoulish dessert for your Halloween party buffet.


  • 2 tablespoons unflavored gelatin
  • 1 can (29 ounces) peaches in syrup
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 6 tablespoons peach flavored syrup (such as Torani or DaVinci brands)


  1. Makes 1 Brain Gelatin mold
  2. Prepare the mold by following instructions on the mold package to oil the mold and place in a bowl for stability.
  3. Pour milk and cream into a small saucepan and sprinkle with gelatin. Whisk the mixture well, then let it sit for 3 minutes. Place the pan over medium heat and bring to a boil, Whisking frequently to insure that Gelatin dissolves. Immediately remove the pan from the heat, pour contents into another bowl and let the mixture cool for about 20 minutes.
  4. In a bender or food processor, or with an immersion blender, purée remaining ingredients.
  5. Pour purée into cooled cream mixture and stir well. Pour about half of mixture into prepared mold. Chill until set but not firm -- about 40-50 minutes. (Hint: I help the process along put alternating the chilling time between the freezer and fridge -- but be careful you do not want the mixture to freeze). Remove mold from the refrigerator. Carefully spoon the raspberry pie filling into the center (see photo left). If you like, you can scoop a small space before you add the filling, but be careful not to take too much or the filling will bleed through to the outside of the mold. Carefully pour the remaining Gelatin mixture over the filling and
  6. Stir well and pour into the prepared Gelatin mold. Chill until firm -- at least 4 hours.
  7. To unmold, dip the bottom of mold in a bowl filled with hot water, taking care to not let any water get into the mold. Dipping the mold for a few seconds helps to loosen the gelatin from the mold. Remove from water and dry off the bottom of the mold. Place a serving platter over the bottom of the mold and flip both over. Carefully remove the mold from the Gelatin.
  8. OPTIONAL GARNISHES I like to serve different GARNISHES with this recipe, for instance: chocolate sauce, chopped nuts and/or sweetened coconut.
