Candy Cane Punch Recipe

Peppermint ice cream makes this beverage taste—and look—more like a dessert than a punch! "I've mixed the sipper many times for ladies' lunches and buffets," shares Neva Schnauber of T. Collins, Colorado. "It's a great way to start a gathering." For a fun garnish, Neva adds, you can hang mini candy canes around the punch bowl and cups.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 25, 2012

I don't know what punch the other reviewers made, but the punch I made for Christmas Eve was awful! There is not one person who finished their cup, let alone a 2nd sip! It is sooo sweet, that it's inedible. I'll never even attempt to make this punch again. It was one of the worst things I have ever tried. I should've just made the mint and pomegranate punch again this year. Oh well, live and learn.

HUGE hit at our Christmas parties last year. I'll be making it again this year. I found the jelly at the Dollar Tree - bargain!

I made this for our family Christmas get together. So glad I got enough to make for another party as the first batch was gone before everyone got to our house. They all said this was their favorite punch now.

I made this last Sunday for fellowship hour after church service. It got rave reviews and several requests for the recipe. It looked exactly like the picture. I even heard a man say, "Isn't that PRETTY!" Great recipe for so few ingredients.

I have made this recipe for years for a group of college kids. They always request it and can never get enough!
