How To Eat Brains For Halloween (PHOTOS)

Nothing says Halloween like eating dessert that looks like a brain. Halloween recipes can be cute, with little marshmallow ghosts and cute spider cupcakes, but if you really want to delve into the true spirit of this holiday you have got to get with the brains. Surprisingly, brain recipes come in many forms: cocktails, cakes, cupcakes and meatloaf.

So this 31st of October, channel your inner zombie (finally, all those hours spent watching "Walking Dead" will come into good use) and start eating those brains.
