Black Halloween Punch

READY IN: 24hrs 10mins
Recipe by Hey Jude

A fun punch for your alcohol-free Halloween party....or add some vodka for the adult party!! The recipe also calls for 2 disposable rubber or latex gloves but I couldn't get that past the Zaar recipe editor. Chicago Sun-Times recipe. Please remember people...this is a Halloween recipe and gross is 'cool' on Halloween!

I made this punch this morning here at my office for our "Boo Breakfast". (I swapped Splenda for sugar for my dietary needs.) It really tastes good for as gross as it looks. It's a sort of brownish color. A co-worker said it looks like swamp water! LOL! I hung gummy worms off the side of the punch bowl and froze two of the wax fangs in a small custard cup so they would be floating in the bowl as well as some plastic spiders and rats in ice cube trays. What a surprise when someone dipped out a gummy worm AND a rat at the same time!! Too much fun. Using this same recipe (and accessories!) tomorrow night for a party, but adding vodka for an "adult" version. ;-) (Pics to follow.) UPDATE: Sharing my pic from my office breakfast. I decided to call it Vampire Blood Punch since I was a "devilish vampire" that morning. ;-)
