Peppermint Stick Punch

Hi friends! I hope you all had a lovely Christmas. We've been busy here. I hosted my family on Christmas day, we were off to distant family's house on Christmas afternoon, and I hosted my husband's more immediate family on Sunday.

My mom shared this delicious punch recipe with me, so I will share it with you. It is very creamy and dessert-like. Everyone loved it on Sunday.

Peppermint Stick Punch

1.75 quarts of Peppermint Stick Ice Cream (this is seasonal and only available this time of year)
2 Liter of Seven Up or Sprite
18 ounces of Strawberry Jelly

The night before your party, in a heavy saucepan melt the jelly in 2 cups of your soda. I did this over medium heat, constantly stirring until the jelly was dissolved. Put in a container and put it in the refrigerator.

The next day in your punch bowl, scoop out about 6 cups of ice cream. Pour over the jelly/soda mixture and the remaining soda. Stir a bit. Float the remaining ice cream on top.

If you want, you may decorate the rim of your punch bowl with miniature candy canes, hanging from the side.



I have been busy cutting up a quilt kit mom bought me the FQS. I think she bought it a while ago. It has the Chez Swanky fabric and the Hip to be Square pattern. I have all of my pieces cut.
