Ghoul Punch

Because my son's birthday is so close to Halloween, I make this for his party every year. It's always a hit with the kids—they just love it—and there's never any left! —Katheryn Sipos, Canon City, Colorado

    This is a recipe with good premise, but I made some changes. Instead of putting water in the hand, I added lemonade...the flavor just POPS when you do this! I also found molds of rib cages and skulls to make more lemonade pops to float in this. Used grape juice instead of the fruit punch and skipped the sherbet all together...makes it too sicky sweet. Used diet seven up to cut more of the sugar. Was refreshing without putting anyone into a diabetic coma!?

    I made this for a tween party and the kids loved the punch! They thought the hand ice cube was awesome. Thanks for sharing!

    This is very tasty. It was a big hit at my daughter's Halloweeen party. I broke some of the fingers off as I was pulling the glove off-it still looked great-it added to the creepiness.

    Had this at my recent Halloween party and wasn't too impressed. The flavor was alittle weak. Great idea with the hand!!!

    I had a Halloween Party and the kids didn't really like this had to make another punch but I did like the idea for the frozen hand and the ice spiders
