  1. To make the frozen hand: Wash and rinse the outside of a rubber glove. Turn glove inside out and set aside. In a 4 cup measuring cup, combine the thawed raspberries and cranberry juice.
  2. Pour 2 cups of the raspberry mixture into a small saucepan. Sprinkle the gelatin over and let stand 2 minutes. Warm over low heat, stirring constantly, just until gelatin dissolves. Mix back into the reserved raspberry mixture in the measuring cup.
  3. Pour raspberry mixture into the inverted glove. Gather up the top of the glove and tie securely with kitchen twine. Freeze until solid, or several days if possible.
  4. To serve: Carefully cut glove away from frozen hand. Place frozen hand, palm side up, leaning against side of a large punch bowl. Pour in ginger ale and sparkling cider. Garnish with gummy snakes.


  • Editor's Note:
  • To avoid issues with people who may have allergies to latex, use a disposable glove that is latex-free. There is usually an alternative available in the cleaning department of your grocery store.

great recipe the gelatin keeps the hands from melting, a hit at a party.

Really cute idea. Using jello for the hand was an ingenious idea. It made this punch look and taste great. Thanks again.

Great idea....made several of them and had them floating in the bowl or hanging onto the edge.

I bought the most inexpensive gloves I could find. I didn't realize how short they would be so instead of one giant arm I had two hands. I served this at my MOMS Club Halloween Party and every...

Great recipe. Personally, I think the advice about using vinyl in stead of latex gloves is overrated. I have a very severe nut allergy (more common than latex allergy) and I have never seen the ...

This was good. I had problems with the hand because the fingers fell off while I was cutting the glove off, but my hand only had about 24 hours to freeze. It was still really cool though becau...

I used this recipe many times for parties. The hand coming out of the bowl is awesome!
