gooey grapes

 

I hope you’re not tired of Halloween treats yet because I have another week of kid friendly party food to share with you.

Starting with these gooey grapes for your little ghouls.

I have to say, I was pretty skeptical about this combo when I first heard about it.

But these sweet and slightly tart little treats were much better than I had anticipated.

They’re actually quite addictive. It’s hard to stop at one.

And just like everything else I’ve shared with you so far, they’re pretty easy to put together.

 

You’ll need:

green grapes

a bag of caramels (I use Kraft)

toothpicks or Halloween themed food picks

heavy cream

sprinkles or chopped nuts, crushed cookies, small candy – whatever you want to adorn them with.

 

1. Add all the caramels to a medium sauce pan with about 2 tablespoons of heavy cream.

3. Heat the caramels/cream mixture on low and give it an occasional stir while everything melts together.

4. In the mean time, impale each grape with a toothpick and add some sprinkles into a small bowl.

5. When the caramel/cream mixture has melted, dip each grape into the melted caramel until the caramel comes about halfway up the sides of the grape. Then dip the bottom of each grape into the sprinkles.

6. Set each dipped grape on a piece of parchment paper or a silicone liner to set up.

7. Once the caramel has set, you can remove the grapes and transfer them to your spooky serving platter.
