"Grape-Nuts" with Chocolate




Could there be anything more simple than this for a sweet snack, dessert or a treat with tea?

Just rinse the grapes and allow to dry, then dip in warm, melted chocolate (your favorite kind), then place on silicone liners or waxed paper.


White chocolate is good, too.

And any kind of fruit; red grapes, cherries, dried apricots, and more. You can vary the nuts, too. The nuts usually taste better if you toast them first.

    Hugs,

  7. Another use for toasted almonds!! Of course you can add me to your favs. If I weren't so presumptuous, I would have asked before adding you a couple of months ago ;-)

  8. Cezanne said, “The day is coming when a single carrot, freshly observed, will set off a revolution!” Well, I feel that way about your grape-nut cups. This should start a wonderful trend in the culinary world. It is one of the most unique finger foods I've ever seen--and so fresh and healthy.

  14. How dainty and pretty. I love chocolate covered strawberries but these are lovely little morsels with the nuts. We were just talking about "grapenuts" cereal the other day so when I saw this I thought that is what you meant. Tricky tricky! Have a great day Mari!
