A refreshing and fun way to serve up some punch at your next Halloween party!
Ingredients
  • 4 cups apple cider
  • 2 cups sprite (or other sparkling soda)
  • 1 cup cranberry juice
  • 2 sticks of cinnamon
  • 2-4 apples (2 for a small punch bowl, 4 for a wider punch bowl)
  • 2 whole cloves per apple (optional)
Instructions
  1. Start by preheating your oven to 250F.
  2. While oven is preheating, peel the skin off of all your apples, and slice them in half, removing the core with a melon baller, then cut faces in the round side. I used the smaller side of my melon baller, along with a paring knife to cut out all the faces.
  3. Once sliced in half, and given a face, place the apple on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.
  4. Bake for about 2 hours until apples have shrunk a bit, and become wrinkly. Push a clove into each eye socket of your apple.
  5. Mix ingredients for punch together, place your apples into the bowl, along with the cinnamon sticks.
  6. Serve and enjoy!
