Its that time of year again, Halloween! Its one of my favorite holidays and also the birthday of my friend Art. For this year’s annual Halloween/Birthday bash I wanted to make something extra creepy. I found this human heart shaped mold on eBay and filled it with black cherry gelatin, sweetened condensed milk, and vodka.  A little melted down strawberry jelly for blood sauce adds the finishing touch. Happy Halloween everyone!

Human Heart

1/4 cup cold water
1 tablespoon (1 envelope) of unflavored gelatin powder
1 1/4 cups boiling water
1 (3 ounce) packages of black cherry gelatin
1/2 cup vodka
1/3 cup sweetened condensed milk
10 drops blue food coloring

Place the clean, empty mold into the freezer.

In a bowl, sprinkle unflavored gelatin evenly over cold water and allow the gelatin to absorb the water for two minutes. Stir in the boiling water until gelatin begins to dissolve then stir in the black cherry flavored gelatin until all is dissolved. Stir in vodka.

Pour 3/4 cup of the mixture into a separate bowl and stir in the food coloring to make the mixture a blue-ish purple color. Pour 1/4 cup of that mixture into a small bowl and place in the freezer to thicken into almost set. Fill a needleless syringe or a medicine dropper with this thickened gelatin and gently apply it to the “veins” inside the mold. If the mold is cold enough the gelatin should stick. Place the mold back in the freezer and return any unused gelatin back into the bowl with the blue-ish purple gelatin and leave at room temperature.

Meanwhile, the in first bowl, stir in sweetened condensed milk until mixture is even. Refrigerate until slightly thickened. Gently pour into the mold. Refrigerate until gelatin is set but not firm (should stick the finger when touched.) Then gently pour the blue-ish purple gelatin into the mold. Refrigerate until firm (overnight).

To unmold dip the mold up to the rim in warm water for about 15 seconds. Cover with a plate and invert.

Melt down some strawberry jelly in the microwave. Allow to cool a bit so it will not melt the gelatin and pour around the human heart on the plate to make blood.

Makes 2 cups
