Candied Grapes….are those a real snack food? For my kids, they certainly are! If you love Sour Patch Kids, then you can think of these as Sour Patch Grapes. They are super easy recipe to make, in fact your kids can make them all by themselves. If you love any type of candied fruit, then these candied grapes are worth a try. You’ll never guess what I used to make the candy coating on the outside….
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
