Zombie Brains for Halloween

The zombies are coming to eat our brains… not unless we eat theirs first! Turning regular macaroni and cheese into green zombie brains is very easy and will sure be a fun addition to your Halloween recipe list.


  • 8 ounces pasta (elbow macaroni or any shape you prefer)
  • 2 cups milk
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 packet of cheese mix (from a mac and cheese box)
  • Green food coloring (as desired)


Prepare the Pasta:

Bring a large pot of water to a boil and add a pinch of salt.

Cook the pasta according to the package instructions until al dente.

Drain the pasta and set it aside.

Create the Green Sauce:

In a separate saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat.

Prepare the Cheese Sauce:

Add the milk and cheese packet to the melted butter.

Stir continuously until the cheese packet is completely dissolved and the sauce begins to thicken. This should take about 5-7 minutes.

Add the Green Color:

Now, it’s time to give your mac and cheese its eerie green color. Start by adding a few drops of green food coloring to the cheese sauce.

Stir well and add more food coloring if needed to achieve the desired “zombie brain” green color.

Remember, it’s best to start with a little and add more as needed, as food coloring can be quite potent.

Combine the Pasta and Sauce:

Once the cheese sauce is a ghoulish green, add the cooked pasta to the saucepan.

Gently stir the pasta until it’s evenly coated with the green cheese sauce.

Serve and Enjoy:

Your Zombie Brains Halloween Green Macaroni and Cheese is ready to be served! You can garnish it with some spooky Halloween-themed decorations or edible “eyeballs” to enhance the Halloween effect.

This creepy and delicious green mac and cheese is perfect for Halloween parties or as a spooky side dish. Your guests will be both frightened and delighted by this eerie twist on a classic comfort food. Enjoy your Zombie Brains Macaroni and Cheese!

  • Have the kids help you add the milk, butter, cheese packet & a couple drops of green food coloring to the pot (the pot should still be hot enough to melt the butter).
  • They can then stir to mix everything together, then add the pasta back in & stir it up again.
  • You can modify this recipe depending on what kind of macaroni and cheese recipe you like to make, the trick is adding the food coloring to the cheese mixture before the pasta, it just mixes better this way.

  • Pour your green zombie brains into witch’s cauldron to make it extra creepy!
