Dry ice vapor gives this crowd favorite an eerie effect. Purchase about five pounds of dry ice pellets a few hours before you’ll need them and store them in an insulated cooler (never the fridge or freezer). Then, wearing protective gloves, use a plastic cup to fill a large plastic or metal bowl about a quarter of the way full with pellets. (Don’t use a glass bowl, which the extreme cold can shatter.) Nestle a medium bowl into the large one and add more pellets to the space between the two bowls until it's about three-quarters full. Prepare your punch separately before adding it to the medium bowl. When you're ready to activate the vapor, pour a cup of room-temperature water onto the dry ice. Serve in a well-ventilated area. Add more dry ice every two hours or as needed.Recipe by Paige Grandjean
