This stuff is GOLDEN. I have served this at several potlucks and it has literally been licked clean at several of the functions. Sweet, creamy, cool sauce. Crunchy, crisp juicy grapes. Buttery warm pecans. It’s the perfect combination of some of the world’s best foods.

Scrub a variety of grapes! Whip up some delicious cream cheese until light and fluffy! and combine them both in a wide bowl, like the one pictured. I love these Fiesta Bistro Bowls for serving. This is the XL bowl.

Press the pecan and brown sugar nice and tightly on top of the wet cream cheese, and allow to sit in the chill for a few hours. This will allow a nice crispy crust to form.
