Frozen Grapes with Jello

Years (and years!) ago, I shared with you how much we love frozen grapes as a snack. My kids have always called these Candy Grapes. I call them EASY.

This Frozen Grapes with Jello recipe is one of our favorites for a sweet treat, and it’s bit more exciting to kids than my old frozen grapes recipe. 

Frozen Grapes with Jello are a recipe that evolved out of our love for healthy snacks and can be made with green grapes (our favorite), red grapes or purple grapes – it doesn’t really matter what type of grape you use, but I do recommend seedless grapes. If you have access to Cotton Candy grapes, those are my daughter’s VERY favorite.

While these aren’t as healthy as a plain frozen grape treat, they definitely hit the spot with their sweet and tangy flavor and I’d still consider this a healthy snack option that is perfect for those hot days of summer.

If you have fresh grapes on hand, this is the easiest recipe and I find that my kids will pick this over their favorite candy – it’s a sweet snack that has become my go-to for a hot summer day treat.

What You Need to Make This Yummy Frozen Grapes with Jello Treat

  • Grapes (give them a thorough washing first)
  • Jello (whatever flavor you choose)
  • White sugar

Jello Grape Recipe

We made these grapes with lime jello,

but you might consider experimenting with different flavors.

We love how tart and tangy the lime is, but there are so many other jello flavors that work well with these. My kids say that this frozen grapes recipe tastes like sour patch kids and they actually kind of look like the store bought candy because the sugar and Jell-O makes a magical coating on them.

This also makes them a fun snack option for parties, especially if you have a princess or magical party theme – kids will get a kick out of finger foods like this that are new and exciting.

I’ve even placed a few of these at the top of their morning smoothies, which not only looks pretty but they get a kick out of it. If you end up making plain frozen grapes (with no sugar or Jello) that’s another fun way to serve them – as ice cubes or garnish at the top of a smoothie.

While they are a pretty plain and simple dessert treat or afternoon snack, you can easily display them as if they are a fancy offering.

I think they look kind of fancy, don’t you? 

And, if you are worried about too much sugar, you can always cut back and use less sugar and less Jell-O mixture. Possibly consider only coating some of your grapes with the sugar mixture and leaving the rest of the grapes plain? That might be a good compromise if you are wanting to go with more healthy desserts and snack options.

Candied Frozen Grapes

I’m always looking for unique snack options for my family, and this is one that everyone loves. I like to find recipes that work with seasonal fruit

choices and these yummy frozen grapes are like a tiny grape popsicle every time you bite into one. (and less messy too!) The best part about this easy snack recipe is that frozen grapes with Jello are super inexpensive (especially if you grow your own grapes!) and you can make an entire baking sheet of these in just minutes.

Tips for freezing frozen grapes: Watch out for freezer burn. Make sure to remove them from freezer once they are frozen and then after that you will want to store them in an airtight container or Ziplock Freezer bag.
