Sometimes, lately, I find myself to be more domestic than ever before.

I am bolstered by Cassidy’s appreciation when I help him in the kitchen or with the house, and I love the kids’ enthusiasm when I prepare meals, desserts, or snacks. I’m a snacks girl. I find that even after all of these years, I’m still at my hungriest late afternoon – when school gets out. When I was asked to prepare a snack or treat using FROZEN grapes as an ingredient, I raced out to Walmart to find these Anna and Elsa grapes. And I mean raced. It was 10:00 at night and I was visiting my parents in New Jersey and my mom joined me on my late night adventure. I have two kids who love both FROZEN and grapes.

And so the magic happened the next afternoon at snack time.

FROZEN

I love kid food. I love to tell people that I have the palate of a five-year-old, because I do, but I just can’t seem to resist items off of the kids’ menu. I think I eat them more now than I did as a kid, because I’m with my kids nearly all of the time. I love rainbow sprinkles. I love chocolate-dipped anything. I love pearly, decorative chocolate balls. Did I mention I love sprinkles? Yes, I love sprinkles. Since we were visiting my parent’s house, I decided to create a family get-together snack.

No one was more stunned by the results than I was.

I think my favorite review was “surprisingly refreshing” but I’m getting ahead of myself now..

As I said, my mom was my shopping partner-in-crime. We went to Walmart and easily found the FROZEN grapes in the grapes section. I was actually a little tired and walked right past them, but they were beautifully noticeable.

I started brainstorming heavily right then and there so I also picked up white chocolate chips for melting, some blue sprinkles and FROZEN inspired chocolate balls that I figured would be really fun for some of my grape pops. When I was paying for my items, the lady behind us in line saw my grapes, my sprinkles, my white chocolate chips and my chocolate balls and said, “Now that looks like a party!” I couldn’t wait to make my snack the next day with Scarlet helping (watching):

FROZEN grape pops

– I melted the white chocolate chips by heating them in a glass dish in the microwave. I used 50% power and would heat them for 30 seconds, then stir, then heat them for another 30 seconds, and then stir. It took a few minutes.

– I washed and dried the grapes and put toothpicks in them. I learned the hard way not to put the toothpick in the end of the grape that has the hole from being attached to the stem. I dropped a few grapes in the white chocolate mix that way!

– I dipped the grapes in the chocolate fully and then I gently shook the blue sprinkles onto them while they were still warm.

– I added the chocolate balls to only some of the grape pops because my daughter doesn’t care for them.

Scarlet had several of the grape pops and Des had about.. 17. (slight exaggeration) My parents both had some and finally so did I! I was surprised at how fast they went. My dad said they were really nice, and texturally interesting – crunchy on the outside and soft and sweet in the middle. Scarlet and Des pretty much just said, “YUM!” but I know they love when I make kid snacks, and with back-to-school time coming so soon, I’m happy to have a FROZEN and grapes-inspired snack to make.

Would you eat one of these, or 17? What would you make for a snack with grapes as the main ingredient?

  1. This is seriously awesome! Why can’t I ever come up with something like this? I think you have now created a brand new Frozen food item soon to be all the rage! Pinned 🙂

  2. OK so now I am going to buy grapes and make these for my still Frozen obsessed girls, because as you know they still can’t get enough of Elsa and the gang! So cute and cannot thank you enough ever for sharing here 🙂

    1. Well, thank you! Always good to hear from other FROZEN moms. It hasn’t died down completely, and that sequel will bring it back full force, I have no doubt.

  3. Beautiful! At first I thought it was grapes dipped in yogurt then rolled in sprinkles. White chocolate is SO much better! PS I could also get on board with sleeping while someone made me cookies!

    1. Actually, the original plan was to do yogurt!! And then somewhere along the line I just went crazy with white chocolate. I think yogurt would be quite good too.

  4. What makes the grapes frozen? I mean before you decorated them. Just curious. Also hmmm grapes and chocolate sounds crazy! But I will try anything with chocolate and mean anything. Though I admit I’m skeptical about this one. Chocolate covered raisins though, those are right in my wheelhouse! So maybe I can just think of them as pre-raisins…is that weird?

    1. The grapes are grapes – but branded as FROZEN for kids. I totally had to up that with the blue sprinkles and pearly looking things, though!
      I don’t think it’s weird at all! Pre-raisins. Ha! I’m NOT a fruit and chocolate person and these were surprisingly good to me, so I guess you never know!

    1. Thank you for noticing! I totally am. It’s like a new me.
      With one boy and one girl, I don’t skip many things. They seem to love them all!

    1. I do like fruit and chocolate sometimes, but rarely grapes. I have no idea why these worked so well but they did! They weren’t too sweet, which was my fear.

  5. What a cute idea! I love freezing my grapes for a little snack, but how much better would they be with white chocolate on them? Thanks for the idea :)!

    1. Thanks! Yes, they were super easy. And it was fun to have my kids “help.” And by that, I mean watch and tell me how many sprinkles to put on them!

    1. haha! They say that up here too.
      I was wondering about genetically altering the grapes to be the size of baseballs. I think I’ll try it in my mad science lab. (you know I have one)

  6. Looks really good- at first I thought it was frosting which didn’t seem appealing to me but the white chocolate seems like it would be yummy.

    Thanks for sharing my daughter loves grapes too 🙂

  7. I definitely would! I love grapes. And yes I love sprinkles too! We usually have the violet grapes here instead of the green ones. 😉 That’s indeed a great back to school snack idea.

    1. I have a real sprinkles “problem.” I use them for everything, nearly. Except savory stuff, so there’s that!
      We have violet grapes too, but my kids like the green ones better.

    1. I really wasn’t either! I was totally making them for the kids and I was light on the white chocolate for the most part. And then it was the adults cleaning the plate!

  8. This looks so yummy! I love grapes just straight up frozen, as in out of the freezer, but I’m sure FROZEN grapes dipped in white chocolate are deliciously mouthwatering too. 🙂 #client

    1. The white chocolate definitely gave them a whole new dimension! What surprised me was that the adults ate more than the kids! I thought it would be a kids’ snack. I was so wrong!

    1. Yeah, they’re very different! I do love cake pops but sometimes they’re too sweet. These are not too sweet at all – especially if you go light on the white chocolate (or yogurt).

  9. Oh these are adorable!!!!! I think my kids would love these, but I know for sure my girls would go nuts for these. They are all about Frozen!

  10. I love grapes! I usually eat them without anything, but adding them a little bit of chocolate and sprinkles would make them a perfect treat. I’m sure my daughter would love them too!

  11. L would eat them if the grapes were red. T would be all over those in a heartbeat…especially with the sprinkles. I’d better not let them see!
