A few days ago, Evie tweeted about snacking on grapes covered with lemon/lime drink powder, which intrigued me so much that I started Googling around for more info. Up popped this recipe for Sour Patch Grapes (aka Leprechaun candy), which uses Jello powder instead, and I decided to give it a go. The whole idea sounds bizarre, but the resulting sugar coated grapes are like bits of juicy candy that you just can’t…stop…eating. It may not be the healthiest way to eat a bowl of grapes, but it’s certainly a tasty one!

Adapted from Sweet Treats and More
Thoroughly wash a pound of grapes, and dump them into a large Ziploc bag while they’re still wet
Pour in a box of Jello powder (I used melon fusion flavor), and shake shake shake!
When the grapes are fully coated, pour them out into a bowl and refrigerate until the sugar sets into a wonderfully crunchy shell
