  • 4 pounds chicken wings
    2 cups ketchup
    1 1/2 cup molasses
    1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
    3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
    2 tablespoons sugar
    Hot sauce to taste
    Black pepper
    Black paste food coloring
    Blue paste food coloring
    Green paste food coloring




  • 1 (6-ounce) package lime gelatin
  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 3 cups chilled pineapple juice
  • 1 2 liter bottle chilled 7 Up or ginger ale
  • 2 cups chilled Smirnoff vodka

Special equipment:

  • 1 large black plastic cauldron*
  • 1 punch bowl that fits inside the cauldron
  • 1 plastic hand*, sterilized in hot water
  • 1 block dry ice (available at supermarkets, ice cream shops or ice companies)

* Items should be easily found at a nearby party supply store.


Pour the gelatin mix into a large bowl. Slowly stir in the boiling water. Stir at least 2 minutes, until the gelatin is completely dissolved. Stir in the pineapple juice. Let cool to room temperature.


Wearing heavy duty gloves or using tongs, place the block of dry ice in the bottom of the cauldron. (Dry ice will burn skin, so handle it with gloves and tongs and keep it away from kids and pets!)

Use an ice pick to break the block into smaller chunks, if necessary.


Fill the cauldron with just enough water to cover the dry ice. It will begin to "steam."

Place the punch bowl inside the cauldron, on top of the dry ice. The cauldron will appear to be magically smoking.


Entrap the sterilized rubber hand between the cauldron and the punch bowl, squeezing it tight so the hand appears to be reaching out of the mist for help. Hot-glue the hand to the cauldron, if necessary, to hold it in place.


Carefully pour the drink mixture into the punch bowl. Slowly add the chilled vodka and lemon-lime soda or ginger ale. Stir gently to mix.

    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Boil the chicken wings for twenty minutes in a large pot. 

    While the wings are cooking, prepare the sauce. Whisk together the ketchup, molasses, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, sugar, hot sauce, salt, and pepper until smooth in a large roasting pan. Add enough black, blue, and green food colorings to the sauce to make a dark black sauce. Place the pan in the oven and bake for 10 minutes, stirring once. 

    Drain the wings well and add them to the sauce and toss to coat evenly, poking the wings liberally with a fork. 

    Bake for 20 minutes, then increase the temperature to 450 degrees. Toss the wings in the sauce again to coat evenly. Bake until the sauce is thickened and slightly blackened, flipping the wings over occasionally, about another 15 minutes. Serve hot or at room temperature.
