Vegan Halloween Party Food:  Bloody Punch with Eyeballs

These Floating Eyeballs were used in the Bloody Punch at my vegan Halloween party. They were easy to make and added an eery touch to the celebration. They also helped keep the punch cold. Oops, I forgot to take a picture of the punch in the punchbowl, with these eyeballs floating on the top,...
