Last Minute Thanksgiving Dessert – Grape Salad

Happy Thanksgiving!  There is so much to be thankful for! I just got home from Wednesday night bluprint service at church and it was amazing. God is definitely moving within this ministry. I’m excited for the things to come in 2014. 🙂

Anyway, about an hour ago I was scrambling around trying to figure out what I was going to take to Mom’s house tomorrow. You see, we had planned on staying in town this year but last night we decided to go ahead and make the trip to good ol’Dimmitt! I hate showing up empty handed to family gatherings so I had to think fast. I’ve had plenty of pie this week so I decided to make this amazing grape salad! I have found various versions of this recipe and they are all divine.  It’s super easy and took me about 25 minutes to prepare.  Here is what you need:

2 lbs of seedless purple grapes, 2 lbs of green seedless grapes, 8 oz of cream cheese, 8 oz of sour cream, 1/2 cup of white sugar, brown sugar, pecans and 1 tspn vanilla extract (not shown).

Start out by please rinsing your grapes!  Lol no one likes grainy grapes! 😉

Then in a separate bowl you will combine the cream cheese, sour cream, sugar, and vanilla and mix with a mixer until it’s smooth.

When the mixture is smooth fold in your grapes and add a handful (or more) of pecans.

Once it is all mixed well then you can sprinkle the brown sugar and top with more pecans. This time I added some marshmallows too!

You can eat it just like that but I really love it after it has been chilled for a couple of hours.

I hope you and your family are blessed this Thankgiving!  Enjoy! – Moni ❤
