Ice Ring Wreath
For a pretty addition to any bunch bowl, add an ice mold. As the mold melts, it will add tasty fruit to your punch!—Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Greendale, Wisconsin
Total TimePrep: 20 min. + freezing
- 4 cups cold distilled water, divided
- 3 large limes
- 1 package (12 ounces) fresh cranberries
- Pour 1 cup of distilled water into a 4-1/2-cup ring mold lightly coated with cooking spray. Peel limes, keeping peel in large pieces. Using miniature tree cookies cutters, cut trees from the peel. Place shapes upside down in top of right mold. Save lime pulp for another use. Place cranberries between tree shapes. Rearrange if necessary before freezing. Freeze until solid.
- Gently add remaining water; freeze. To use, wrap bottom of solidly frozen mold in warm towel until loosened or dip mold in pan of warm water. Float ice ring, fruit side up, in cold punch.

You don't have to use distilled water, but it results in an ice ring that is clearer and less cloudy than one made with tap water.
