I have made this punch several years in a row for my husband's staff Christmas party. I originally found it in a Taste of Home Magazine. I love it!
20 oz. strawberry jelly/jam
2 liters lemon-lime soda
2 quarts peppermint stick ice cream
miniature candy canes for garnish, if desired
In a large saucepan, melt jelly with 2 cups of soda.
Chill the jelly mixture and remaining soda. Just before serving, place 6 cups ice cream in a punch bowl and gently stir in jelly mixture and remaining soda. Add remaining ice cream by scoopfuls.
If I have labeled a recipe as GlutenFree or Dairy Free but it appears to have those ingredients in it... that means the recipe is still delicious with substitutes/replacements. Ex: soy milk, lactose-free cheese, Bragg's liquid aminos (for soy sauce), all-purpose gluten free flour (Better Batter is my favorite), etc. Please check your individual ingredients to be sure they are GF or DF, if that is what you need.
