Wow. I saw this on Pinterest, but I wasn't too optimistic that grapes could taste like apples. I was wrong. So, so wrong.
These. Are. AWESOME! And an absolutely perfect fall snack!
They are so awesome in fact, that I made them yesterday. Yesterday!! I was so excited about sharing them that I downloaded the pics this morning, edited them, and had to get this post out as soon as possible.
These are super simple...sure, it's a bit tedious sticking toothpicks into a million individual grapes, but you can always have the kiddos help with that. Once that's done though, just dip and roll!
I PROMISE you, they really do taste like little mini caramel apple bites. My mother was supposed to come over and try these with me, but she didn't feel like it...her loss! I made less than I was planning to since she didn't come over and that turned out to be a good thing since I ate almost all of them myself. Seriously...I probably had 15-20 of these. I just couldn't stop.
If your kids like caramel apples, they will absolutely destroy these. Make them...TODAY! I'm telling you...awesome!
Ok, have a great weekend guys! I finally get my hubby and Bubba-Loo back tomorrow, and I can't wait! Over 3 weeks without my guys. It's bad enough when Heath has to go out to sea, but I will not be without my boy that long again until he leaves for college...which I'm sure will thrill him in about 10 years ;)
'Caramel Apple Grapes'
Source: Very Culinary
1 cup caramel bits
2 tablespoons heavy cream
handful of seedless green grapes
1 cup salted peanuts, crushed
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.
