Grape Salad

Remember all of the church potlucks and family reunions with all of the colorful salads?  That weren't really salads at all?  Because salads don't contain marshmallows.  Those "SALADS" belong at the dessert end of the table.  This is one of THOSE SALADS.  When Little Devil asked what was for dinner on Memorial Day I replied, "BBQ Beef Tips, Crockpot Cheese Corn and Grape Salad."  Of course I got an Ewww Face along with, "Grape SALAD???" in a grossed out tone of voice.  I said, "Well you know how Snickers Salad isn't really a salad, but it's fruit and candy bars and a bowl of awesome? Think variation on Snickers Salad."  It was a huge success.  I think the crushed Butterfingers on top were the biggest hit.  Mr. DD who rarely eats seconds in the summertime actually brought the bowl to the table for more than one refill.  It's cool and decadent and hardly a SALAD.  But boy is it good.  Totally a "Don't knock it til you tried it" Recipe.  Seriously.  Give this one a try. It's unusual but it is a keeper! 
It's hardly a salad.  I don't know what to call it
besides bowl of awesome!
I used my Great-Aunt's Vintage Pyrex bowl.
Perfect for this recipe!

Butterfingers on top?  Yes please.
Now that is MY KIND of salad!

2 pounds red seedless grapes
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 (8 ounce) carton sour cream
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 full-sized Butterfinger candy bars, crushed

Wash the grapes, remove from stem.  With an electric mixer combine the cream cheese, sour cream, sugar and vanilla until smooth and creamy.  Gently fold in the grapes until well coated.  Place in serving bowl and garnish with crushed Butterfinger candy.  Serve immediately.
