Caramel Grapes

A going away party for a fabulous co-worker at work!  Since this shower was around the same time as the last, I decided to change my appetizer.  Again, I browsed through Pinterest searching for quick appetizers and found a new item!  I found a recipe for Caramel Grapes.  I prepped by purchasing my ingredients before my stretch of work days.  I was able to easily make this after a twelve hour shift at work just before bed.

The original recipe calls for nut toppings, but I could not find them at my local grocery store.  I went to the ice cream section and looked through toppings.  This treat may be a little too sweet for some, so I would suggest nut toppings for the “Less Sweeter The Better” individual.

Ingredients:

1.  Seedless green grapes

2.  Old Fashioned Caramel Dip

3.  Praline Crunch Ice Cream Topping

4.  Toothpicks (decorative or regular)

Directions:

Grapes must be room temperature.  Warm caramel dip in microwave for 10 seconds, stir, and warm for another 10 seconds.  Skewer grape through toothpick.  Dip half of grape into caramel.  Dip grape into bowl of praline crunch.  Sit on wax paper until you are ready to package them up.

Strawberry Brownie Kabobs

You are on the spot.  Someone asks you, “What are you going to bring to the party?”  You run through the list of things that are easy to grab–plates, vegetable tray, fruit tray, drinks, and utensils, but they are already taken.  Crap (or whatever PG-13/R word that happens to slip off your tongue)! *light bulb* PINTEREST!

I thought these were a cute idea for a wedding shower at work.  I used the picture on their website as a guide, rather than the recipe.  The picture shown above are the strawberries I took to work.

Ingredients:

1.  Strawberries

2.  Skewers (I found the perfect size at Publix.  You can also half the large ones.)

3.  Pre-made brownies (found in bakery section of Kroger)

4.  Chocolate icing for cupcakes (found on bakery isle in most stores.)

5.  Marshmallows

Directions:

Cut the tops off strawberries.  Skewer first strawberry, brownie, marshmallow, and last strawberry.  Decorate with chocolate icing.  Continue until you have the desired amount of skewers.
