  1. Lightly oil a brain-shaped gelatin mold.
  2. Stir the peach gelatin mix with boiling water in a bowl to dissolve the gelatin. Allow to cool to room temperature, about 20 minutes. Mix in the evaporated milk and peach schnapps; pour into the prepared mold. Refrigerate until set, 4 to 6 hours.
  3. To decorate, dip the mold in very warm water (don't let the water enter the top of the mold) to loosen; invert the mold on a serving platter and lift to leave the brain in place. Mix blue and red food coloring in a small bowl with 2 teaspoons of water. Use a small clean paintbrush to paint the coloring into the grooves of the brain. Return the brain to the refrigerator until the food coloring sets. Serve cold.

This recipe is excellent as is, however to make it really realistic I added drops of red and blue color to the main mix until it looked gray. I not only painted it (using a q-tip) with the food ...

Sliced the brain with a big chef knife for effect. Tasted great!
