Sour Patch Grapes
Prep: 10 Mins | Total: 10 Mins
Serves: 6-8 servings
Difficulty: Easy
1 1/2 Pounds Green Grapes, destemmed
1/4 Cup Water
3 Ounces Cherry Flavored Powdered Gelatin Mix (1 small box)
3 Ounces Orange Flavored Powdered Gelatin Mix (1 small box)
3 Ounces Lime Flavored Powdered Gelatin Mix (1 small box)
Place the destemmed grapes in a large bowl with the water, and toss to coat.
Place each flavored powdered gelatin mix on its own large plate or in its own gallon-sized resealable bag, and set aside.
A handful at a time, place about 1/3 of the grapes each into each flavor of powdered gelatin, and shake to coat.
Remove the grapes from the gelatin mix, plate, and serve. If desired, the coated Sour Patch Grapes can also be frozen at this point.
Chef Tips
Using a spray bottle to coat grapes in water will result in a more even coating when rolled in the gelatin mix.
For a thicker coating, grapes can be sprayed again with water and coated with gelatin mix a second time.

We’ve made our Sour Patch Grapes the classic colors of red, orange and green— cherry, orange, and lime-flavored, of course! But you can change this easy recipe to make any flavors and/or colors you want. Just grab your favorite flavors, and start tossing and rolling those grapes.

Want an even bigger burst of flavor? Easy. Just wet the coated grapes again, then roll and coat them all over again for thicker flavoring. They also taste great frozen and eaten straight out of the freezer. (Plus, that makes them last longer, too!)
