Blood Punch with Severed Hand

Apple juice
Cranberry juice
Ginger ale
New rubber glove
Red food coloring
1 lb coffee can

To make the hand, fill a new rubber glove with water. Tie at the wrist with string and freeze one or two days. Unmold. Sometimes a finger will fall off when unmolding, but that's okay, it adds to the ghoulish effect! To make a base for the hand, fill a one-pound coffee can about 1/3 full with water. Insert the hand and freeze until firm.
To make the punch: Mix equal parts of apple and cranberry juice and ginger ale. Refrigerate. When ready to serve, place half the mixture in the punch bowl. Insert hand ice mold in the center. Fill bowl with remaining punch.
Note: For added effect, place a few drops of red food coloring on the tips of the fingers just before serving.
Yield: 1 punch bowl and hand.


Candied Apples For Halloween

1 1/2 c Sugar
2 ts Vinegar
2/3 c Water
1 pk Cherry Kool-Aid
10 Apple
Mix sugar, vinegar and water. Boil until mixture reaches 300-degrees; cool. Stir in Kool-Aid. Put apples on sticks and dip into mixture quickly. Yield: 10 Candied Apples.


Cool Ghoul Treats

Clear plastic or latex gloves
Twist ties
Flavored drink mix, regular or sugar-free
Gummy worms (optional)
If the gloves have a powdery residue inside them, turn them inside out and soak in warm water or wipe with soapy water and rinse. Allow gloves to dry. Or, turn gloves inside out, leaving the powdery side on the outside.
Mix your favorite fruit drink (sugar-free liquid freezes better than liquids with sugar) and pour into the gloves. Add enough drink to fill the gloves loosely but not so full that the fingers will not move. Fasten the gloves with the twist ties. Place paper towels on a cookie sheet and lay the hands on the paper towels. Freeze. When the hands are frozen sol- id, carefully cut off gloves with scissors. Float hands in a bowl of punch for scary fun. If you wish, you may add gummy worms to the juice before freezing.
