½ cup of chopped walnuts
½ cup of reduced-fat sour cream (may substitute with ½ cup of plain Greek yogurt)
To prepare walnuts, line a small baking pan with parchment paper or foil; coat with cooking spray.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Toss walnuts in a bowl with water. Sprinkle with brown sugar and salt; toss to coat well.
Transfer to the prepared pan. Bake until the sugar is melted and the nuts are barely starting to brown (6-8 minutes).
Cool in the pan until the sugar hardens (about 6 minutes).
Meanwhile, combine the sour cream or Greek yogurt, cream cheese, honey and vanilla in a food processor; puree until smooth and creamy.
Transfer to a large bowl. Add grapes; gently stir to combine. Transfer to a serving dish.
Crumble the candied walnuts on top just before serving.
