Rotten Apple Punch
Apple cider (adjust the amount for the number of people you plan to
serve; we suggest at least 1 gallon)
5 (1/2-cup) containers
Red and green food coloring
10 to 15 gummy worms
Pour apple cider into all 5 (1/2-cup) containers, stopping about
1/2-inch from the top. Add 2 drops of red and 1 drop of green food
coloring to each container and stir until the colors have blended.
Hang 2 or 3 gummy worms around the edge of each dish and place the
dishes in the freezer. If you use more than 3 worms, the rotten
apples won't float as well. Freeze until the rotten apples are
Just before serving, slip the frozen wormy apples out of the dishes
by setting them briefly in a few inches of warm water in your sink.
Float the rotten apples in a large punch bowl filled with apple
cider. For added creepiness, drape the gummy worms over the edges of
your serving bowl as shown.
Cook's Note: Do steps 1 and 2 the day before serving the punch
