Caramel Apple Grapes

"As Spain counts down to midnight on New Year’s Eve, it is customary to eat a dozen grapes timed to the 12 bells of the famed Puerta del Sol clock in Madrid. Finish all 12 grapes before the strike of midnight and begin the year with luck and prosperity."  -kitchendaily.com

Since most of us can use all the luck we can get, I thought these Caramel Apple Grapes would be the perfect snack to bring on New Year's Eve!  They really do taste like mini caramel apples and were a huge hit at the party!

Enjoy!
