Black Halloween Punch
Disposable thin latex gloves (unpowdered)
1 (0.13-to 0.15-ounce) envelope unsweetened grape soft drink mix
1 (0.13-to .15-ounce) envelope unsweetened orange soft drink mix
2 cups sugar
3 quarts cold water
1 liter ginger ale, chilled
To make frozen hand, rinse out a disposable glove, fill it about three-fourths full with water, and seal with a rubber band. Lay flat on a baking sheet and freeze until hard, about 8 hours.
Stir soft drink mixes and sugar into cold water until dissolved. Combine with ginger ale just before serving. Dip frozen hand briefly in warm water, then peel off glove. Float hand in punch bowl.
2 heads cauliflower
2cups guacamole (store-bought or homemade)
2 cups salsa (store-bought or homemade)
Red and blue fruit leather cut into thin strands
Remove all outer leaves from 1 head of cauliflower. Working with a sharp paring knife, carefully cut out stem and core, hollowing out just enough to make a "bowl", leaving outer part of head intact. Use toothpicks to hold the florets together if they fall apart. You may want to poke toothpikes into the florets right after you remove the leaves and stem, but before you tackle the core. Repeat with the other head of the cauliflower.
Set cauliflowers in shallow bowls (for stability) and fill with guacamole and salsa. Decorate "brains" by weaving thin strands of fruit leather between florets to make veins and arteries.
This is awesome...
