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:
- Wash the 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 mix 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 refrigerator or freezer until chilled or frozen solid, typically 2 hours.
- Serve as desired.
