Directions for: Spooky Apple Cider Punch


4 cups apple cider

2 cups Sprite (or other sparkling soda)

1 cup cranberry juice

2 sticks cinnamon

2 - 4 apples (2 for a small punch bowl, 4 for a wider punch bowl)

2 whole cloves per apple (optional)


1. Start by preheating your oven to 250°F.

2. While oven is preheating, peel the skin off all of your apples and slice them in half, removing the core with a melon baller. Cut faces using the round side (I used the smaller side of my melon baller, along with a paring knife to cut out 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!
