  • 1 pound seedless green grapes chilled
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice from 1 lime
  • ½ cup water
  • 15 ounces flavored gelatin mix 5 boxes, any flavors


  • Line rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • Pour the gelatin flavors into 5 separate small bowls.
    15 ounces flavored gelatin mix
  • Remove the stems and wash grapes.
    1 pound seedless green grapes
  • In a large bowl, add the grapes and water. Squeeze in the lime juice and toss to coat. Make sure grapes are wet.
    ½ cup water, 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • Place each grape on a toothpick then roll and dredge through gelatin, alternating colors.
  • Place on prepared sheet to set up. Gelatin will dry slightly.
  • Eat immediately or chill on sheet in a single layer.


  • Make sure to fully remove the stems from the grapes. No one wants to bite into a tough stem!
  • If you plan to feed these to young children, be sure to use seedless grapes to prevent choking. You may also want to cut the grapes in half.
  • These can be frozen but that makes them very very cold and hard for little mouths. We just chill them and we are happy campers.
Storage: Store candy grapes in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
