'Shrimp On The Brain' Cracker Spread
A creamy shrimp party dip, with a devilishly spooky look.
- 1 10 oz can cream of mushroom soup
- 1 8 oz pkg cream cheese, softened
- 1 pkg unflavored gelatin
- 1/4 cup water
- 1/3 cup thinly sliced green onions
- 2 cups cooled, cooked shrimp, roughly chopped
- 1 cup mayonnaise
- 1/4 tsp hot sauce
- cocktail sauce
- crisp, sturdy crackers
Whisk together the gelatin and water until completely dissolved. Set aside.
In a large skillet, over medium heat, stir together the cream cheese and soup until completely incorporated and smooth.
Remove the skillet from heat and stir in the gelatin mixture until completely incorporated. Gently fold in the remaining ingredients.
Lightly spray the inside of a brain shaped mold with non stick cooking spray. Pour the dip mixture into the upended mold. Cover the mold tightly with cling wrap, and refrigerate until set-- at least 4 hours, or overnight.
When ready to serve, turn the mold right side up and out onto a serving plate or dish to release it. Spread a bit of cocktail sauce over the top of your 'brain' to bloody it up. Insert a cheese 'knife' or small steak knife into the top for added presentation (optional).
Serve with extra cocktail sauce and crackers for dipping/spreading.
