Candy Thermometer

Jello Grapes Ingredients:

  • 1 lb. seedless grapes
  • 1 cup cold water
  • 1 box jello powder (any flavor)

Jolly Rancher Grapes Ingredients:

  • 2-3 lbs. green grapes (seedless)
  • 1 small bag of Jolly Ranchers
  • 2 cups sugar
  • ⅔ cup water
  • ½ cup light corn syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Wooden Skewers


Jello Grapes:


  1. Begin by preparing your grapes. Rinse them and insert skewers into the stem end. Pat dry them thoroughly using kitchen towel before dipping them in the syrup.
  2. The next step is to prepare candy by placing the Jolly Rancher candies in freezer bags and crushing them with a tenderizer or rolling pin. Once ready, pour the crushed candy into a bowl to coat the grapes.
  3. Add sugar, water, and corn syrup to a heavy-bottomed saucepan and bring the mixture to a boil over high heat. To prevent the syrup from boiling over and to ensure that it cooks evenly, it's important to stir the mixture frequently while maintaining a rolling boil.
  4. Let it boil for about 5 minutes until the syrup reaches the hard crack stage (so that the syrup sticks to the grapes easily), which is between 300-305ºF (148-152ºC). Use a candy thermometer to confirm when the syrup has reached the right temperature.
  5. Once the syrup is ready, stir in the vanilla extract. Dip each grape gently into the hot syrup, moving quickly to cover each grape with syrup. Pour crushed candy flavors over the coated grapes, or roll the grapes in a bowl tipped sideways for easier coating.
  6. Set the coated grapes on parchment paper to dry for about 30 minutes. Carefully remove the skewers and serve within a few hours.
  7. Enjoy Jolly Rancher grapes' sweet and crunchy taste with your family and friends!

Jolly Rancher Grapes:


  1. Rinse the grapes and pat them dry with a paper towel.
  2. Insert a skewer  into the stem end of each grape and set them aside.

  4. Dip a grape into a water bowl, then immediately dip it into the Jello powder. Coat each grape with a thin layer of Jello powder.
  5. Place each Jello-covered grape onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, grouping them by flavor.
  6. Place the baking sheet in the freezer for at least one hour.
  7. Serve and enjoy!
