When I first heard about the Sour Patch Kids Hack using grapes, I laughed and said,“No Way, I am not making those!” Then with some encouragement, I decided it was worth a try. And let me tell you it was totally worth it. They are so delicious! Get ready to pucker up because they are really sour, sweet fun!
There are several versions floating around TikTok, this one was a big winner for us since we are sugar free. I used a VitaMix dry blender to blend the dried fruit into a fine powder. It was totally worth it. A coffee grinder or spice grinder would work well too.
Sour Patch KIDS Hack
1 bunch grapes
½ -1 cup dried fruit powder (Natierra is the brand of dried organic mangos I used)
Place dry fruit in a blender until it grinds into a fine powder
Wash and dry grapes. Place in a container or bag in the freezer for several hours or overnight.
Remove from freezer and toss with lime juice. Add powdered fruit and stir or shake.
Simply Good Jello (free of dyes, artificial flavors and preservatives)
NOTE: mine got clumpy with the lime juice, so I tried without it and they worked just as well!
