Caramel Grapes

I saw this idea on Pinterest and decided to try them. These treats are really easy since I used caramel bits that melt quickly.



 Ingredients:

  • 1 package 11 oz. caramel bits, or make your own caramel 
  • 2 tablespoons of water
  • A large bunch of grapes washed and stems removed
  • Strong round toothpicks
  • 1 cup pecans finely processed
 Process:

  1. Stick a toothpick in each individual grape so they are ready to dip.
  2. Melt caramel bits with 2 tablespoons water in a heavy bottomed saucepan.
  3. Dip the grapes into the caramel.
  4. Swirl the dipped grapes in the finely chopped pecans.
  5. Place gingerly on a serving platter.
These will make a fun addition to your next fall party. They will be a surprise taste treat for your guests.

  6. Grapes? Really, grapes? Must take forever just to make a dozen. It would be fun to do just to see people's faces when they see caramel grapes.

  8. Another question for you. I see you mention placing them "gingerly" on a platter. What is the reason for the caution? Thank you.

    1. Gingerly just to keep the caramel and nuts where they belong. Because I'd be moving them once more I didn't want them to get stuck on the first sheet.

  9. At first I thought these were mini apples. I have a feeling I could eat hundreds of these. This might be dangerous.

  11. Getting ready to make these with my kids next week...we're dipping them in sprinkles! Do you mean to put the water in with the caramel bits? Or you only used 2T of water in a double boiler?

    1. Put the water in with the caramel bits...
      You'll need a lot more water in the bottom of a double boiler if you are using that method. I just used a heavy bottom saucepan not a double boiler and it worked fine. A double boiler sounds safe, though...
