We’re all about healthy, easy, delicious snacks that take almost no time to assemble. If they’re equally perfect for a charcuterie board, even better! Try these frozen grapes as a fantastic treat for any occasion.

Let’s get this out of the way: frozen grapes are fantastic just as a snack. I can hardly think of a time I haven’t had a ziploc bag of them in my refrigerator. However, they also make a wonderful addition to a charcuterie board!

These little frozen beauties are almost always on our summer charcuterie boards. They work best with small boards—especially if you’re serving the food outside—since they thaw quickly in the heat.

I like to divvy them up in advance if they’ll be going on a board. I’ll put out a small dish of them at a time, then grab a quick refill once they’re gone (and they go quickly).

Frozen grapes are delicious if they’re enjoyed immediately out of the freezer, but personally, I prefer them about 10-15 minutes after setting them out. They’re like tiny little popsicles with bursts of sweet flavor!

Recipe Idea: Toss 3-4 cups of green grapes with the juice of two limes, then roll them in sugar. Freeze for a few hours for a sour patch version of frozen grapes!
Note: Frozen grapes shouldn’t be given to small children as they (just like fresh, unfrozen grapes) can be a choking hazard. If you give these to kids, cut them into small pieces first!

How to make frozen grapes

Frozen grapes are so simple to prepare that they don’t qualify as a recipe, but I’ll share the steps with you anyway.

Wash the grapes thoroughly. Remove them from the stem, discarding any that don’t look completely fresh. Dry them completely, then toss them in a freezer bag. Freeze them for at least an hour or two, although they’ll keep well for a few months.

You may also roll them in sugar before freezing. If you opt for the sugared version, only dry them partially so the sugar has something to stick to. You don’t want them too wet, though, so make sure to pat some of the water off first.
