Key ingredients

You can use any type of grapes you like in this recipe. There are so many different varieties available at many grocery stores these days, so choose whatever looks fresh and make sure they’re not mushy or overripe.

I prefer to use dark chocolate when making these chocolate covered grapes, but you can substitute any type of chocolate you prefer.

I like to top these chocolate grapes with a sprinkle of finely chopped pecans. Walnuts or pistachios would be a delicious topping too. Or you can omit the topping if you prefer.

How to make them

Start by washing, drying, and removing the grapes from the stems.
