This gross Halloween punch recipe is perfect for kids. They will adore the floating ice cube brain in the middle of this non-alcoholic Halloween punch. And the recipe is super simple—and tasty, too. Try adding a little red food coloring to the water before making your floating brain to give it that especially gory effect.

What You'll Need

  • 2 (3-ounce) packages lime jello
  • 4 cups boiling water
  • 2 (12-ounce) cans orange juice concentrate
  • 2 liters ginger ale
  • 1 (48-ounce) can unsweetened pineapple juice
  • 1 cup sugar

How to Make It

  1. Spray brain ice mold with cooking spray. Fill with water, leaving about 1 inch of room at the top. Place in an 8x8-inch baking dish or deep dish pie plate to stabilize the mold. Freeze until firm.
  2. When ready to serve the Halloween punch, dissolve the gelatin in boiling water. Stir 2 to 3 minutes until jello is completely dissolved.
  3. Stir in orange juice concentrate. This will help cool down the Jello. Add the ginger ale, pineapple juice, and sugar. Mix well. Transfer the Halloween punch to a large punch bowl. Unmold the brain ice cube (invert onto a plate), and place in the center of the Halloween punch.
