Who ever thought something so simple could be so magical? Honestly, when my beautiful sister-in-law made these for my nephew’s fifth birthday party, I was speechless. Why had I never thought of this before? They were the hit of the day, consumed even before all of the sugary treats.

Makes 12

• 8 ounces green grapes
• 8 ounces red grapes

Thread the grapes onto 12 wooden skewers. For visual effect, vary the colors, some green, some red, some red and green.

Variation: Instead of skewers, you could try plastic toy wands (sanitized, of course) from your local dollar store. A perfect way to lure all the princess partygoers to the fruit!
