A Better Sweet Treat

What kind of sweet tempts your sweet tooth the most?  Are you the chocolate-chocolate lover, the sour candy pucker face, or the fruity-chewy combo kind of sweets eater?  I am not picky…I love them all, but I will say that a good fruity sweet is probably my favorite.  When I am trying to make healthier choices, but that sweet tooth is really nagging me, I turn to this quick little trick.

Grab a pound (or two) of grapes – red or green – whatever suits your fancy.  While you are there, hop on over to the jello isle and grab a 3 oz box of sugar free gelatin – again, whatever flavor suits your fancy. (Tip: One 3 oz box of gelatin will cover 1.5 – 2 lbs of grapes!  A little goes a long way!)

Poor the dry gelatin onto a plate, rinse your grapes and SHAKE dry.  The grapes still need to be slightly moist so don’t pat dry or leave them out to dry too long.  Pluck those grapes, toss them into the gelatin, and give the plate a little shake, shake, shake!  The grapes will roll around and get coated with the gelatin.  Put them in the fridge for 30 minutes or so, then take them out, and pop those little sweeties into your mouth!

Today’s combo at my house was red grapes with strawberry sugar free jello (just because I had some jello left over from another recipe), but the best part of this treat is trying out different combinations!  My absolute favorite combo is green grapes + green jolly rancher jello!  They taste like sour patch kids!!  Speaking of kids, this is a treat they LOVE and can even make themselves!

Make sure you try them out, then come on back to the blog and leave a comment with your favorite combo!
