|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. |
"Grape and orange soft drink mix are combined with sugar, water and ginger ale for a scary looking punch -- and don't forget the frozen hand!"
