Want to achieve grapeness? Same here. That's what led us to experiment with what is maybe the most simplistic recipe on this entire site, but also a very satisfying one. We asked ourselves the question "why is it that strawberries dipped into chocolate get all of the love?" We wanted to know why different fruit isn't getting dipped into the awesome fantasticness that is peanut butter. Why can't we be going nuts over peanuts? After all, we're always going nuts after peanuts.
So we experimented a bit. Strawberries in peanut butter? Yup, it's a winner. It's got the fun of chocolate covered strawberries, but in more of that classic PB&J fashion. We tried dipping cantaloupe in peanut butter. It honestly wasn't very good. We tried bananas on peanut butter, but everyone knows that bananas and peanut butter is a tried and true classic of delicious snacking. But then came the thought of grapes.
It's an age old debate if a peanut butter and jelly sandwich is better with strawberry jelly or grape jelly, but even then, grape jelly doesn't really taste like "grapes". Plus, what about green grapes! Green grapes have such a good sweetness with just a hint of tang. And even more so, what about frozen grapes?!
So here is what we did. We stabbed some grapes with tooth picks. Then we froze them. Then we dipped them in some ever so slightly warmed up peanut butter. Then we threw them back in the freezer for 15 minutes to let the peanut butter harden up. Then we took them out of the freezer and ate them one by one, before we had a chance to consider putting them onto a plate and making them look fancy. Quite honestly, they were just too yummy.
