Cookies and Cream torte- candied grapes

I got the recipe for candied grapes from my friend Kristie. They are super simple.
1 box grape jello
pour jello (powder) in a ziploc, pour grapes in bag, shake. Now the fun part. Put them in the freezer for a couple of hours or days. These are yummy sweet and sour snack. The kids love them. They are a great snack on a hot day.

wow, oh, wow! All of that looks delish! I've never thought of putting jello powder with the grapes. I just throw them in the freezer. Love them frozen!

I'm going to have to attempt that torte as well. I have a thing for Oreos!

Thank you for sharing, Pam!

I almost felt bad for posting the oreo cake because it was so easy

I've never made any myself, but LOVE candied figs and pineapple. I've also had candied orange peels which were really good. Here is a recipe I found for the orange peels. :)
