Caramel Apple Grapes



'Caramel Apple Grapes'
Source: Very Culinary

Ingredients

1 cup caramel bits
2 tablespoons heavy cream
handful of seedless green grapes
1 cup salted peanuts, crushed
toothpicks

Directions

1. Poke toothpicks into the tops of each grape; set aside.

2. In a small pot over medium-low heat, combine the caramel bits and cream. Stir until melted. Reduce heat to lowest setting just to keep warm.

3. Place the peanuts in a shallow dish and dip the grapes into the caramel sauce and then roll in the crushed nuts. Place on a plate to set. Repeat until all the grapes are used.

  1. Such a cute and genius idea! I love caramel apples but haven't made them at home because it seems to hard to get the stick in them. They're also really big. But these are easy and adorable!

  2. I'm making these today for my niece's birthday party. It is prefect because my son is allergic to apples and I can not believe how much it takes like caramel apples! I will not need to worry about him having a reaction today and no one needs to miss out on this awesome treat. Thank you!

  3. Here's a picture of them. I found them in the candy section with all the other bagged candy. Odd since I kind of thought they'd be in the baking section.

  7. Why cant you just use a jar of caramel?

  8. Well, a "jar of caramel" is designed to stay "runny", whereas the mini caramels will firm back up and stay on the grape.

  9. Will this still taste like a carmel apple with out the peanuts? We have a nut allergy in the family.

    1. I don't see why not! The peanuts do give it a very distinct flavor, but I think they'll be just fine without them.

  10. Any suggestions for something instead of a toothpick? I was thinking of bringing these to a 1st grade party, but would hate for them to become 'weapons', lol!
