About this recipe: A must every Halloween - this recipe is great fun! A fake hand is frozen in a rubber glove and then presented in a bucket or glass punch bowl. Dress the hand up with a few Halloween gimmicks like spiders.
great recipe the gelatin keeps the hands from melting, a hit at a party. - 07 Aug 2008
The taste of the punch was good and very easy to throw together although the hand did not work out for me so I'm only rating this 4 stars. I followed the directions as written and ended up with enough raspberry mixture to fill 2 gloves. I froze them for 2 full days and while I was removing the glove a finger on each hand broke off. The kids thought it was still cool to have the chopped off finger floating in the punch bowl with the hand missing a finger. Very Halloween! I think next time I will just freeze water and make an ice hand. I hope they edit the recipe to indicate "latex free" glove. I used vinyl because you just never know who could have an allergy. - 07 Aug 2008
This made a great visual impact but no one liked the actual flavour of the punch. I spent hours making the hand only to throw the whole lot out. In this day and age, it's an incredible waste of food. 5 stars for visual impact but 0 for flavour. If I were to do this again, I would use different ingredients. Also, in the picture above, why is the punch red and the hand white? If you follow the recipe it's the other way around. - 07 Nov 2011
