I’ve been getting over bronchitis and am having a hard time shaking it. I didn’t even feel like snacking on all the goodies at our annual office-wide cookie exchange party at work. I have to admit that I was a bit bummed. My throat was sore and I had medicine-head. Enter Leslie to the rescue with her candied grapes.
Leslie has amazing “cheater” recipes. She calls them cheater because they’re so, so simple, but taste so good. I should have known Leslie would have something up her sleeve.
Leslie brought me a bowl of these candied grapes and told me to try one. She said it would make my throat feel better. I was skeptical. I mean, a grape’s a grape, right?
Candied grapes are amazing! Why had I never heard of them before??
I made these for our family Christmas gathering, and everyone went back for more. It’s hard to eat just one or two. They’re truly addicting.
This is so simple to make. There are only two ingredients: grapes and jello mix. That’s it. You can choose to use sugar-free jello for a low-calorie version (I can’t even tell the difference). You can combine whatever flavors of jello with black, green, or red grapes. I think that cherry jello works well with black and red grapes and that lime jello combines well with the green grapes.
This Candied Grapes recipe is different from the other versions I’ve seen online because the grapes are frozen. Don’t knock it ’till you try it. The frozen version is way better.
