Frosted Grapes

Sharing is caring!

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 have got a nice sweet finish.

Ingredients to make frosted grapes

  • Lime Jello
  • Green Grapes

We stick to one basic method which includes green grapes and lime jello. The flavors seem to pair nicely together but I am sure you could mix and match creating countless combinations. We even tried the sugar free JELL-O and could not even tell a difference. You cannot go wrong with a snack that is only two ingredients! 

Variations in flavors:

Red grapes + cherry jello

Black grapes + raspberry jello

How to make candy coated grapes:

  1. Wash the grapes. Pull them off of the stem and toss them into a colander.
  2. Rinse them well. Don’t worry about getting them too dry since the water helps the jello to stick.
  3. Place your jello mix into a giant Ziploc bag. Add the grapes and shake them like crazy!
  4. Place them in an air tight container and put them into the refrigerator or freezer until chilled or frozen solid, typically 2 hours.
  5. Serve as desired.

I love these! I made these for St. Patty's Day, for my coworkers. They turned out great!! My boys love them, as well. It is nice to be able to give them something semi-healthy, and tasty since they both have MAJOR sweet tooths!

I actually have something similar, you take an apple, peel, core it and slice. Then sprinkle some strawberry jello on it place in refrigerator and presto! You have a snack. You can use sugar free jello too. I also have taken a fresh pineapple, cored it and cut chunks. I sprinkled strawberry jello, put it in the fridge and it will make a glaze. I use those frilly toothpicks and have a great snack for the pool, birthday and anytime. Thanks for the grape idea!

I just saw your link at TT&J' party and soooo glad I did. I was just looking for a healthy "cold" snack for my son for hot days. This is perfect! He loves grapes and the potential for different flavors of jello is awesome. Thanks for sharing. I'm going to have to pin this so I'll remember it.

Have a good weekend, Shasta
