Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • If the gloves have a powdery residue inside, turn them inside out and soak in warm water or wipe with soapy water and rinse. Allow gloves to dry.

  • If using gummy worms, tuck a worm in the fingers of each glove. Carefully divide tonic water between gloves. Add a few more gummy worms to each, if using. Tie ends with kitchen string or bag ties. Freeze flat on a plate or metal baking pan for at least 6 hours or until firm.

  • In a large punch bowl, combine fruit punch, soda, and fruit. Carefully use a kitchen scissors to remove frozen hands from the gloves and float on top of the punch mixture. If desired, carefully drip the melted jam around the inside of the rim of the bowl for a bloody effect. Add additional gummy worms, if desired. Add dry ice to punch before serving for a more dramatic effect.


**Using tonic water will make the hand glow under black light!! We suggest letting the tonic water go a little flat before filling the gloves so it freezes more solidly and melts more slowly.
