I served this punch at my daughter's 5th birthday party and the entire punch bowl was empty at the end of the afternoon. I also served this at my annual cookie exchange and the punch truly has appeal to both kids and adults.
2 liters club soda
1.5 quarts Dreyer's peppermint ice cream
1 quart of egg nog
Crushed candy canes or sugar sticks to garnish
Mix the first 3 ingredients (ice cream should soften a bit before adding). Sprinkle with candies. This can be made up to 2 hours ahead, just place it in the fridge.
Yield: 1 gallon
Decorating idea: line the rim of the punch bowl with mini candy canes
