Spider Cider Punch

Spider Cider Punch Bowl
  • Make the chilled version of the Spiced Apple Cider recipe below and pour in a punch bowl.
  • Pour cider into an ice cube tray and put a small plastic spider in each cube.  When frozen, pop them out and float in the punch bowl.
  • If your spiders are too big for an ice cube tray, freeze them in Styrofoam cups, using enough cider to cover spiders.
  • If available, you can substitute gummy spiders for plastic ones.
  • Do not put the spider ice cubes in drinking cups since it is a potential choking hazard.
  • Print poem here and slip sign into small acrylic frame.  Set sign by punch bowl.

The old witch ordered fresh spider cider,
So all of her spiders did abide her.
But some fell in and turned to ice. . .
As the witch cried, "What a touch so nice!"
