These yummy chocolate dipped grapes are a great treat for your older kids and great for parties. They are yummy eaten as is, or if you pop them in the freezer they make a delicious frozen treat too. Unfortunately though, not many of them made it to the freezer, as my son came in with his friends and they couldn’t wait to try one. They definitely got the thumbs up from my son and his friends.
Chocolate Dipped Grapes
Makes 8 skewers
- 32 red seedless grapes
- 60g of milk chocolate
- 1 digestive biscuit, crumbled (or use graham crackers/oreo crumb)
- 1/4 cup of sprinkles
- 8 wooden skewers
Make sure your grapes are patted dry.
Then carefully place 4 grapes on each skewer
On some baking paper, spread out your crushed digestive on one half and some sprinkles on the other half.
Get a piece of aluminium foil and roll into a firm ball and place in a bowl, you can use this to stick the skewers in to dry.
Place the chocolate in a bowl over a saucepan of simmering water and stir until melted.
Once melted you can then lightly spread over the grapes using a spatula, or dip them (however I found the dipping hard to do because of the shape of them on a skewer it was much easier to spread with a spatula).
Then holding the stick of the skewer roll them in the coatings. I made 4 with biscuit crumb and 4 with sprinkles.
Then stick them in the foil for the chocolate to set.
Once set you can either eat as is, or for a yummy frozen treat, wrap them in some greaseproof paper and freeze.
Frozen grapes on their own are yummy, but covered in delicious milk chocolate they are even better. Great for kids and parties.
You can also do these with white or dark chocolate.
NOTE: These are not suitable for baby led weaning or very young children
