Is it Taffy Apple Season Yet?

Not quite, but pretty soon! I can't wait. Last week I went to a friend's annual end of summer jazz party and after much back and forth about what I was going to bring, I decided on these little guys that we have come to call Mini Taffy Apple Treats.

I'm not sure where the original recipe came from. A friend once served them at a party and shared the recipe. They're super easy to make and taste just like taffy apples! Here's what you need:
  • A bunch of red seedless grapes (washed and dried)
  • A bag of white chocolate morsels (or a large 4 oz baking bar)
  • A large bag of nut topping (I had to use two little bags)

Melt the chocolate in a double boiler on the stove or melt in the microwave, careful not to burn the chocolate (like I did...whoops!)

Dip a grape in the chocolate so it is half covered.

Roll dipped grape in the nut topping.

Rest on wax paper.

That's it! You're done! Enjoy!

I've never heard of such a treat before. I love grapes and those look very interesting. May have to give them a try. I wonder if it would work with milk chocolate, too?

By-the-way, I tried the flour-less brownie recipe you made for this last weeks Operation Fat Blaster challenge. I didn't tell my husband how I made the brownies. He really liked them! He didn't even blink when I told them they were made with black beans. I also like them. Will definitely hold onto that recipe.

My little boy is going to LOVE these! I'm sure I will, too, but that's only if I keep the plate out of his reach so I'll actually be able to get any :)

Those are adorable little treats. I recently tried melting some Nestle white morsels and they would not melt. Not on the stove or in the microwave. They did become one mass, but it was thick. Strangest thing.

Can't wait to try these! They are so cute and sound yummy. We have several gluten-freers at my church and these will be a great treat!
