It is something my grandchildren and I threw together because we were getting an awful lot of grapes and you can only make so much jelly. This is very delicious. Hope all of you enjoy this recipe.


  • 1 cup regular splenda
  • 4 cups green grapes
  • 4 cups red grapes
  • 8 oz sour cream fat free
  • 8 oz cream cheese 1/3 % fat free
  • 1 cup pecan
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar Splenda


Cut grapes in halves, mix sour cream, cream cheese and regular Splenda together, and then fold into grapes.

For topping: Crush pecan, then mix with brown sugar Splenda. Sprinkle on top.

Note: You can replace Splenda with sugar if you would like. Information below is based on using Splenda in recipe.

  • 1/2 box graham crackers
  • 1/2 lb. butter

Lightly oil jelly roll pan and line with graham crackers. Melt butter in medium saucepan. Add brown sugar and stir until mixture bubbles vigorously. Add pecans and quickly spread over the graham crackers. Bake at 350 degrees F for 10 minutes. Cut along indentations of the crackers. Leave in pan and freeze for 1 hour. Do not eliminate freezing! This is what makes them so crunchy!
