Happy Friday everyone! These Candied Grapes were such a salvation for me last week when I needed something quick and easy to do with my kiddos. You see, our “summer schedule” includes a family activity every afternoon and that particular afternoon was a crazy one. No time to head to the pool for a couple hours or even the park. I needed something done and over in 15 minutes. Yes, I could have skipped the family activity that day, but boy oh boy would I have paid for it the rest of the day….
These Candied Grapes use nothing but grapes and some Jello powder. And since I know how much my little minions love the sweet and sour combo, when I first saw this recipe over on Household Almanac, I knew we had to give them a try. The stronger the pucker, the better! I know, some of you despise sour flavors so you can use the same recipe but with Jello flavors that aren’t sour.
We had a debate over which flavor was the winner, the Green Apple or the Watermelon Candied Grapes. Personally, I preferred the green apple because of how sour it was but the watermelon flavor was a winner with everyone as well. Look around the Jello section at your store and try out the flavors that look fun to you!Print
- Green or red seedless grapes
- 1 box green apple or watermelon gelatin
- Place the grapes in a strainer and wash well. Leave them in the strainer to drip dry a bit
- Pour the jello powder onto a plate then roll the damp grapes in the powder until coated. Place in the fridge for one hour to allow the jello to set and serve cold
