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.. Nancy.... 9/25/12
