Grape Salad with Coconut Topping

I did not make this recipe up, I found it on another blog, and out of respect for them, here is the link to the original makers of this delicious recipe.

Super yummy.  It feels like you're eating something healthy because it is grapes.  But what your brain doesn't remind you is that while you're eating those healthy grapes, you are also eating a less-than-healthy-but-well-worth-it-because-of-deliciousness cream cheese/sour cream/sugar 'dressing' and topping made with a high portion of brown sugar.
I'm someone who loves food, even if the haters out there deem it 'unhealthy'.  My mouth is a judgment-free zone.

Large bag of grapes (red, green of both), enough to fill a 9X13 pan

8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/3 c. sugar
8 oz. sour cream
1 tsp. vanilla extract

1 heaping c. Grape Nuts cereal
2/3 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. coconut flakes

1.  Beat together cream cheese, sugar and vanilla, then fold in sour cream.  Stir grapes in with the creamy mixture then spread out in a 9X13 class pan.  Refrigerate.
2.  RIGHT BEFORE SERVING: Combine topping ingredients well and add over the top of the grapes.
