Candy Bar & Grape Salad

I’m here today in the name of butterfinger candy bars mixed up with juicy grapes in a blanket of sweet creamy goodness.  Yes, it’s one of those dishes that you aren’t sure which category it belongs in…is it dessert?  or maybe a salad?  how about a side dish?  Who knows?  And actually, who cares?
I had a grape salad at a potluck last summer, it had cream cheese, sour cream, brown sugar and nuts in it.  I really wanted to make it again, but never did.  Over Easter, my mother-in-law was visiting and telling me of this grape salad that I just had to try.  Her version had Butterfinger candy bars…didn’t have to twist my arm to get me to make this one.
If you have friends that are weary of different sounding dishes, this will honestly make a believer out of them. I have such a friend who enjoyed at least 2 servings of this a recent birthday party and couldn’t believe how amazing it is.
I cut back on the sugar and the amount of candy bars that were in the original recipe.  I would say the amounts below are a good starting place, if you like things sweeter add a little more sugar.  This really ought to make an appearance at your next cook out!
