Yields: 12 servings
4 pounds seedless grapes (red and green)
½ cup sugar
8 oz sharp cheddar cheese, grated
8 oz cream cheese, room temperature
8 oz sour cream
¼ cup brown sugar
2 cups chopped pecans
Slice grapes in half. In a large mixing bowl combine sugar; softened cream cheese and sour cream. Using electric mixer cream ingredients. Mixture will still have some small lumps. Once mixed, add grape halves and cheddar cheese. Stir by hand until well blended. Refrigerate over night. Just before serving add pecans and brown sugar mixture.
Yield: 12 to 14 servings
Ease of Preparation: easy
Notes from Paula’s test Kitchen: Refrigerating 4 hours gave us the same flavor. We toasted the chopped pecans for bigger flavor and left some grapes whole for a more attractive appearance.

I love reading about your family and seeing your pictures. I respect the fact that you are teaching your son's family values because so much of that seems to be going by the wayside anymore..maybe someday we will meet and by that time your son's may even have their own cooking show.lol..wishing you lots and lots of love from this country girl's kitchen to Brooke Deen's kitchen of love.
