Winter White and Spring Green Tea Party: Chambord Grapes Under Snow

I’m a poky poster today but it’s my husband’s fault! He offered to go to the store to pick up the grapes for this recipe. Instead of going to the store which is a couple blocks away, he went to Wal-Mart. Three hours later, he’s finally back home. In addition to my grapes, he bought a music CD, the ugliest slippers you ever saw and a huge bag of pretzels. That man cannot be trusted alone in Wal-Mart! Anyway here is the recipe, simple and delicious:

¾ pound seedless grapes (about 2 cups)
2 tablespoons Chambord liqueur
1/3 cup heavy cream, chilled
1/3 cup light sour cream, chilled
1/3 cup plain yogurt
Chopped or grated chocolate

Cut grapes in half, if you like, and divide among 4 dessert dishes. Stir ½ tablespoon Chambord into each. In a small mixing bowl, beat heavy cream until soft peaks form. Add sour cream and yogurt and mix until soft peaks form. Spread over grapes. Just before serving, sprinkle with the chocolate.

If you prefer not to use the Chambord, fresh orange juice would be a nice compliment to the grapes. You can use low-fat sour cream and yogurt and frozen no-fat whipped topping in a tub if you prefer. But don't try to whip anything other than heavy cream.
