INGREDIENTS

12 Red Vines Grape Licorice Twists, chopped into small pieces

½ cup water

2 tablespoons butter

2 cups mini marshmallows

Pinch of salt

2 cups rice crisp cereal

16 large candy eyeballs

Purple sprinkles

01. Step One – Melt Red Vines Grape Twists

Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over low heat. Add the marshmallows and a pinch of salt and stir until melted.

Frankenstein Grape Pastries

INGREDIENTS

2 Refrigerated pie crusts

½ cup Grape jelly

1 Egg

2 tbsp Water

½ cup Vanilla frosting

2 Drops green food coloring

12 Candy eyeballs

Black icing

Purple sprinkles or crushed chocolate cookies

2 RED VINES® Grape Twists cut into 12 ½-inch pieces

01. Step One

Preheat your oven to 375F degrees.

02. Step Two

Unroll the pie crusts and flatten with a rolling pin. Use a pizza cutter or a knife to square off the edges. Cut the crusts into equal rectangles. Tear away the scraps and roll the crust flat to cut more rectangles. You should end up with 12 rectangles total.

03. Step Three

Make an egg wash by whisking an egg with 2 tablespoons of water in a small bowl.

04. Step Four

Set half of the pie crust rectangles on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Add a spoonful of grape jelly to the center of the rectangles. Then brush the edges with egg wash.

05. Step Five

Brush the edges of the other six pie crust rectangles with egg wash. Lay them on top of the jelly topped pie crusts with the egg wash side facing down.

06. Step Six

Use a fork to crimp and seal the edges of the two pie crust rectangles together. Brush the top of each pastry with egg wash and prick each with a fork a few times. Bake for 15 minutes, or until the tops of the pastries are light golden and slightly crisp. Transfer the pastries to a cooling rack.

07. Step Seven

Scoop the vanilla frosting into a bowl and stir in a few drops of green food coloring. When the pastries are cool, spread the top of each with the green frosting. Add two candy eyeballs to each pastry. Draw on the eyebrows and mouth with black icing and coat the top half inch of each pastry with purple sprinkles or crushed chocolate cookies.

08. Step Eight

Place two Red Vines Grape Twist pieces on either side of the pastry just below the mouth. Serve immediately.

Fluffy Pancakes with Grape Drizzle

INGREDIENTS

1 RED VINES® Grape Twists chopped into small pieces

1 cup Water, divided

1 tbsp Honey

Pinch of salt

1 cup Flour

2 tsp Baking powder

1 tbsp Sugar

1 cup Milk

1 Egg

½ tsp Vanilla extract

2 tbsp Grapeseed oil

Cooking spray

Sliced banana and blueberries, for topping

01. Step One

 

Combine the Red Vines Grape Twists and ¼ cup of water in a saucepan. Bring to a simmer over low heat, stirring frequently to prevent the candy from sticking. When the liquid has cooked off, add ½ cup of water and continue to simmer until the Grape Twists are very soft, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat.

02. Step Two

 

Scoop the melted Grape Twists into a blender and add ¼ cup water, 1 tablespoon of honey, and a pinch of salt. Blend until the mixture is smooth. Set aside.

03. Step Three

To make the pancakes, add the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt to a large mixing bowl and whisk to combine.

04. Step Four

 

In a separate bowl, combine the milk, egg, vanilla extract, and oil and whisk to combine. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until the batter is lump-free.

05. Step Five

 

Mist a skillet with cooking spray and warm over medium heat. Pour a quarter cup of batter into the skillet and cook until small bubbles appear and burst on the top of the pancake, about 2 minutes. Flip and cook another 1 to 2 minutes, until golden brown on both sides. Repeat with the remaining batter.

06. Step Six

 

Transfer a stack of pancakes to a plate and drizzle with Red Vines® Grape Twists syrup. Garnish with sliced banana and blueberries.
