Here's a Frightfully Delicious Recipe for Halloween Punch:
Bubbly Black Punch with Wormy Ice Ring
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Servings: 16 (3/4 cup each)
- 1 cup gummy worm candies
- 4 cups green berry rush kiwi-strawberry fruit punch (from 128-oz container)
- 2 cans (12 oz. each) orange carbonated beverage
- 2 cans (12 oz. each) grape carbonated beverage
- 1 can (11.5 oz.) frozen grape juice concentrate, thawed
- 3 cans (12 oz. each) sparkling mineral water
- 1. In bottom of 6-cup ring mold, scatter most of candy works. Pour fruit punch over candy, filling to within 1 inch of top (candy worms will float to top). Place remaining candy worms over edge of mold. Freeze 5 to 6 hours or until solid.
- 2. Just before serving, in 3-quart or larger punch bowl, mix carbonated beverages, thawed juice concentrate and mineral water.
- 3. Dip outside of ring mold in hot water until ice ring is loosened. Remove ice ring and place in punch so gummy worms are visible.
