These are amazingly addictive and easy to make. Grapes are dipped in white chocolate, then peanuts, and the result makes a beautiful presentation that is great for appetizers or desserts.

These were so good I could have eaten them all before the guests arrived. I melted the chips and then put all of the grapes in the bowl and tossed to coat then spread them onto wax paper and sprinkled finely chopped peanuts over the top. These were a hit! Read More

I had some extra chips and grapes so i thought why not? My toddler spit hers out after one bite my husband almost did the same. I was neutral something that wasn't unedible but i would def not make again. Read More

These are fantastic! I only dipped about a quarter of the end of the grape in the white chocolate giving the finished treat the appearance of an acorn. I also used toffee covered peanuts. Although they are good at room temperature they are even better chilled. I will definitely make this recipe again. Read More

These little gems are perfect! So easy for children to help/make. I have to say that we like the white chocolate on the grapes more so then the milk chocolate that we also tried. The peanuts really finish the recipe into perfection! Read More

So good. I served these at a kids' birthday party and they were gone fast... both the adults and the kids loved them! I ran out of peanuts so I smashed up some pretzels which turned out great. Read More

This was a really fun dessert to eat. It's surprising as you find the freshness and juicyness of the grape inside the sweet and salty combination of white chocolate and nuts. I used roasted salted cashews instead and chilled them for a few hours before serving them. They went fast and everybody was intrigued and pleasantly surprised. Read More

These were a hit! I left off the nuts do to an allergy and I still think they were that good! My girlfriend loved them and they are better once they have sat in the fridge and gotten really cold. Read More
