Caramel Apple Grapes

Caramel Apple Grapes Recipe

Wow. I saw this on Pinterest, but I wasn’t too optimistic that grapes could taste like apples. I was wrong. So, so wrong.

These. Are. AWESOME! And an absolutely perfect fall snack! Love caramel apples? Then you’ll go crazy for Caramel Apple Grapes!

They are so awesome in fact, that I made them yesterday. Yesterday!! I was so excited about sharing them that I downloaded the pics this morning, edited them, and had to get this post out as soon as possible.

These are super simple…sure, it’s a bit tedious sticking toothpicks into a million individual grapes, but you can always have the kiddos help with that. Grapes dipped in caramel and then in nuts.

PROMISE you, they really do taste like little mini caramel apple bites. My mother was supposed to come over and try these with me, but she didn’t feel like it…her loss! I made less than I was planning to since she didn’t come over and that turned out to be a good thing since I ate almost all of them myself. Seriously…I probably had 15-20 of these. I just couldn’t stop.

If your kids like caramel apples, they will absolutely destroy these. Make them…TODAY! I’m telling you…awesome!

Ok, have a great weekend guys! I finally get my hubby and Bubba-Loo back tomorrow, and I can’t wait! Over 3 weeks without my guys. It’s bad enough when Heath has to go out to sea, but I will not be without my boy that long again until he leaves for college…which I’m sure will thrill him in about 10 years 😉
