Happy Thursday: Grapesicles!

image

This past weekend I had the pleasure of hosting a birthday party for my favorite little two year old, Lillian. Not having kids myself, I wasn’t sure what to snacks make for a child’s birthday party… but then I saw these gems on Pinterest. Grapesicles! So pretty and so clever.

To make these darling grapesicles, I simply skewered red and green grapes and froze them. They take an hour or two to freeze completely, but that’s really all the time they require. Easy as pie. I did make sure to cut the sharp ends off the skewers. I didn’t want to be “that girl” – you know, the one girl who doesn’t have children who then gives all the kids sharp skewers so they can poke their eyes out? No thank you.

And let me just say…the grapesicles were a hit. The kids quickly figured out that the grapesicles were tasty and they could also double as swords. It was a win-win situation for all. I refrained from using my grapesicle as a sword, but I did eat one or two (or three or four) and enjoyed every delicious icy bite. Move over, popsicles. Frozen grapes are my new best friend.

    They look cool – you can do this with a banana too and they taste just like ice cream as they defrost…

    Hi Lindsay,

    Happy Friday! Just double checking your gallery, I see that our team has already uploaded 5 of your recipes. Awesome! Looking forward to seeing more deliciousness from your end. I just picked up some grapes from the local market, I’ll have to put them on skewers and freeze them for grapesicles. 🙂 Feel free to shoot me an email if you have any other questions….

    Cheers
