Ok, so I was a bit skeptical about this when I first heard about jello grapes. If you’re part of any WW group, you’ve probably heard them recommended as a sweet treat. But really, how can grapes rolled in jello be such a revelation? Well…then I tried them.
We made them over the summer to keep in the freezer and once I had one, I’d had half the batch. This is where the product is so much more than the sum of its parts. Eating them frozen, they were cool, tangy, sweet, and had a delicious texture but eating them just out of the fridge also didn't disappoint. They’re zero points, so they’re great to keep in the freezer for after dinner or when the 3 o'clock cravings start to kick in.
I like making these in a combination of flavors for myself to snack on and for the kids to grab when the urge for something sweet hits. The outside of the jelly grapes reminds me of sherbert, and the sweetness of the grapes underneath is just the perfect combination. I can see why they trended on social media!
I used a mix of large green and smaller, sweeter red grapes and rolled them in sugar-free raspberry jello, but any combination will work. Just mix and match your favorite. There are two options for these, the fridge or the freezer. If you freeze them, they are more solid and chewy, whereas if they’re kept in the fridge they are cool and fresh tasting.
