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


Special equipment:
Punch Bowl
  1. 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.
  2. 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 solid.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
