Recipe: Skittles Punch

April 14, 2015


This Taste the Rainbow Skittles Punch recipe is simple, tasty, and fun to look at! It’s also easily customized with your favorite colors if you’d prefer. I just went with a classic Skittles rainbow, singing the chant I learned from one of Evelyn’s TV shows all the while. Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, don’t forget there’s purple too.

To create this recipe for your event or family, you’ll start by pouring some fruit punch into an ice tray. Then you’ll add Skittles, separating them by color. Freeze then until the cubes are solid.
