Frosted Grapes are a staple in our home. They are a quick snack and simple way to help with any sweet craving I might be having and the secret is JELLO.
When I first tried out this recipe I was a skeptic. I mean, WHO in their right mind would cover rapes with powdered jello mix and freeze them? The good news is they taste a lot like sour patch kids which happens to be high on my list of favorite candies. The first bite is a little tart and sour but by the end you’ve got a nice sweet finish.
We stick to one basic method which includes green grapes and lime jello. The flavors seem to pair nicely together but I’m sure you could mix and match creating countless combinations. I think we’ve even tried the sugar free JELL-O and couldn’t even tell a difference. You can’t go wrong with a snack that’s only two ingredients and not too unhealthy. The kid gives these two thumbs waaaaay up and always gets excited when he sees them in the freezer.
You’ll want to start by removing the fruit from the stem and washing them in a colander. Don’t worry about getting them too dry since the water is going to help keep the Jello powder stuck onto each one.
Toss the two ingredients into a large Ziploc bag, make sure it’s closed good and tight, and give it a shake.
It is that simple. In under five minutes you will have these babies ready for the freezer. I like to put them in an air tight container before I place them in the freezer to give them a little extra protection from freezer burn. One or two always help with my sweet cravings but my little guy likes a small bowl full. We see more of these during the summer months but occasionally they make an appearance in the fall.
- 2-4 cups green grapes
- 6 oz lime Jello
Start by washing your grapes. Pull them off of the stem and toss them into a colander. Rinse them well. Don't worry about getting them too dry since the water helps the jello to stick.
Place your jello into a giant Ziploc bag. Add the grapes and shake them like crazy! Place them in an air tight container and put them into the freezer for a few hours.
