My neighbor served these little bites at her baby shower. Naturally I asked for the recipe.
Be sure to make double...they go fast!
A wonderful blending of flavors,with the refreshing inside bite of the seedless grape.
I calls em, .....alligator eyes!
You might want to try seedless red grapes, with crushed pecans.
Both would look real pretty during the holidays !
Just saying,.... only a thought..
