With Christmas just around the corner (I can’t believe it’s already that time of the year), I wanted to share an extra special snack that is a staple in my house since I was a kid: frosted grapes or as niece like to call ‘em Elsa’s Frozen Grapes (believe it or not, after 4 years Frozen was released she still looooves it!)
Seriously, is there anything more festive than these sugared grapes?
Not only they are a yummy snack but you can use them as a decoration to your holiday desserts. Imagine a classic white layer cake topped with these grapes. It’s pretty awesome if you ask me.
If you want a snack that’s perfect for the holidays, delicious, beautiful, and a touch on the healthier side too, then these frosted grapes are just perfect.
Instead of stuffing yourself with cookies or fudge, grabbing a fistful of frosted grapes may make you feel a little better about yourself.
Because making better choices when snacking and eating is one step in the right direction, especially during the holidays.
Yes, these frosted grapes are covered in sugar and yes, grapes on their own are equally as delicious, but it’s the holidays after all. Am I right?
Frosted Grapes Print this recipe!
Serves 12 as a snack
Two large egg whites (or 4 tablespoons liquid egg whites)
1 lb / 453 gr seedless grapes
1 cup sugar (I used organic white cane sugar)*
*Use coconut sugar to make them paleo
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
Thoroughly wash grapes, pat them dry, and cut into small (or single) clusters.
Place egg whites in a shallow bowl and beat with a fork until frothy (they should run off the whisk in a thin stream.) Place sugar in another shallow bowl.
Dip each grape (or grape clusters) into the egg, shaking off excess. Next dip the grapes in the sugar, turning to lightly coat. Gently shake off excess sugar and place on the lined baking sheet. Repeat with remaining clusters.
Let grapes dry, uncovered, at room temperature, about 2 hours.
Frosted grapes can be made 2 days ahead and kept, uncovered, in a cool dry place (do not refrigerate).
