Gooey Grapes {Healthy Option}

This is such an easy and scrumptious dish. It can be served as a side dish or even dessert. 

IT HAS CREAM CHEESE!  So you gotta know I think it's awesome!
Hope the rest of you love it too. 

You can use green or red grapes, or a combo of both...or even purple ones.
Whatever your family loves the most....or what's on sale. 


I also love that this dish keeps for several days in the refrigerator too..
if the grapes are fresh, even as long as a week!

It's a great 'twist' on getting your family to eat more fruit.  You can serve it right away, or even 5 days later!

You can opt to cut sugar amount in half to add to the cream cheese, then  sprinkle the remaining amount in brown sugar over the top just before serving.
