Sparkling punch bowl

Yield: 32 Servings

Measure Ingredient
8 packs (4-serving size) Jell-O brand gelatin; any flavor
8 cups Boiling water
1 \N Bottle (1 liter) ginger ale
\N \N Ice cubes
5 cups Cut-up fruit
1 can (20-oz) pineapple chunks in juice; drained
\N \N Mint leaves (optional)

DISSOLVE gelatin in boiling water. Combine ginger ale and ice cubes to make 8 cups. Add to gelatin, stirring until slightly thickened. Remove any unmelted ice. Measure 4 cups of the gelatin; set aside. Fold cut-up fruit and pineapple chunks into remaining gelatin. Pour into large punch bowl.

Chill until set but not firm.

WHIP reserved gelatin at high speed of electric mixer until fluffy, thick and about doubled in volume. Spoon over gelatin in punch bowl. Chill until firm, about 2 hours. Garnish with additional fruit and mint leaves, if desired.

NOTE: We suggest sliced bananas, strawberries or grapes.

NOTE: If large punch bowl is not available, use smaller bowl and pour extra gelatin mixture into punchcups.
