prep: 15 mins cook: 5 mins total: 20 mins Servings: 8 Yield: 8 servings


  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • ⅓ cup white sugar
  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 pounds red seedless grapes


    Step 1

    Place pecans in a skillet over medium-low heat; cook and stir until pecans are toasted and fragrant, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat and pour into a heatproof bowl; stir to prevent nuts from overcooking.

    Step 2

    Beat sugar, cream cheese, and vanilla extract together with an electric mixer in a bowl until smooth. Fold in pecans and grapes. Stir gently until grapes are coated.
