This week I made these delicious cherry peach cupcakes with homemade peach icing as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars #WalmartProduce
I love having family, friends over, entertaining them. But I like to switch it up from time to time. I want to keep them guessing on what I will pull out of my hat this time. Now I will be the first to admit that this mentality can be daunting and time consuming when it comes to preparing the food and making it. So when I come up with an idea that can be done easily, I jump on it! So my good friends called and said, “Hey, we are close are you busy?” I just couldn’t in my good Southern Manners turn them away so I say, “Sure, Come on Over!” So then begins the 10-minute speed clean and the appetizer making.
Well, it had been a while since I had been to Walmart, so I was running low on creative food supplies but what I did have were grapes, cream cheese, nuts and prosciutto. The last time I was in Walmart, I saw some amazing looking grapes. Grapes are in season and Walmart’s produce department never disappoints.
So what should I make?! I had two different types of grapes and so in my frantic appetizer making, I decided that I would wash and dry the grapes and then wrap the in the prosciutto, followed by the cream cheese, and finally rolled in crushed nuts. I mean let’s face it, who could resist that combination?!
I grabbed a toothpick and it made a great visual presentation to add extra grapes on top. I wasn’t having many people over, so I knew I could a small amount of these nearly done by the time my company arrived. I finished them in 10 minutes, and chilled them in the fridge and allowed them to harden up a little.
Our friends arrived and of course we enjoyed some delicious grape prosciutto bites! No leftovers! You know you’ve found a hit. It’s a simple fresh appetizer that I can make with fresh grapes from the Walmart produce department! Check out the variety of grapes at Walmart.
- 3-4 grapes per tooth pick (I did 15 toothpicks)
- 2oz of spreadable cream cheese
- 8 pieces of prosciutto or other similar cut in half
- ⅔ cup of crushed nuts of choice
- Put a thin layer of cream cheese on the meat and wrap around grape.
- Then (you will get messy) take your hands and put cream cheese on them and completely cover the prosciutto-covered grape.
- Follow that by rolling in crushed nuts and repeat.
- You can add a few grapes on top or to the bottom. Enjoy!
