  • Skewered Grapes
  • 96 red seedless grapes
  • 16 6-8-inch wooden skewers

  • Cheesecake Dip
  • 8 oz. cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla yogurt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Skewered Grapes

Skewer 6 grapes lengthwise onto each of the wooden skewers so the grapes touch one another. (Note: If you are using 4.5-inch wooden picks, simply skewer 3 grapes lengthwise onto each pick instead of 6.)

Cheesecake Dip

Place cream cheese and sugar in a medium mixing bowl bowl. Using an electric hand mixer, beat until well combined and smooth. (Alternatively, cream cheese and sugar can be mixed using an electric mixer.) Add yogurt and vanilla and beat again on low speed just until blended.

Transfer the cream cheese mixture into a decorative bowl and serve on a tray or large plate surrounded by the skewered grapes, making sure the pointed sides of the skewers are facing the dip bowl.
