Tip

Some pumpkin pie mix will eventually settle to the bottom, but that's normal. We suggest you keep a whisk nearby and give the punch a stir before serving up a round of drinks.

Step 4: Add Sliced Apples

Slice up your apple(s) and toss them into the punch bowl.

Tip

If you'd like ice-cold punch, we suggest adding ice to glasses before serving rather than adding ice directly into the bowl with the punch. This will prevent your rich, yummy punch from getting over-diluted.

For those desiring an extra bit of decadence, add a dollop of whipped topping and a sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice to their glass right before serving.
