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.

Paula, I used to watch your show on Food Network a lot when I still had the TV and cable many year ago. You weren't even that big a star back then. I always love watching you cook on Youtube after I ditched my TV and cable and read your recipes on Food Network Magazines. I hope one day you can return to Food Network and the Food Network Magazine. I stop buying the magazine since you were gone.
