I’m back home and back in the playful kitchen! Back with BRAINS with pumpkin pie filling and nougat filling!

What could be better than a seasonal treat right now? The leaves are falling, it’s getting colder… and very soon, it’s Halloween! You just have to mention Halloween and immediately, the song “This is Halloween” is stuck in my head. Anyway, I like the song, so no problem here!

I’ve never been found of Halloween until I’ve been to the US, dressed up and watched the movie (Nightmare before Christmas!). And I never liked zombies until lego came up with lego zombies. And those are still the only zombies I like.

So, here they are.

BRAINS with Pumpkin Pie Filling and Nougat

  • 100g / 3,5 oz vegan white chocolate
  • Pumpkin Pie Filling (use your favorite recipe or this one. I recommend using a little less liquid than you’d use for an actual pumpkin pie)
  • 50g / 2 oz nougat
  • 2 Tbs vegan cream (I used soyatoo soy whip)
  • Brain Freeze ice cube mold (or another scary mold)

Melt white chocolate.
Put it in your mold, so that the brains are all covered in chocolate. This is the hollow chocolate body. Put in the refrigerator and let it harden.
Melt nougat and mix with vegan cream.
Fill some brains with nougat, some with pumpkin pie filling. Seal the brains with another layer of white chocolate and put it the fridge until the chocolate is hard. Enjoy!
