These sugared cranberries are not only a delicious seasonal treat, but they make a beautiful garnish to all of your holiday dishes and festive cocktail recipes.


  • 2 cups sugar - divided
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 bag (12-ounces) fresh cranberries


  • In a medium sauce pan over medium heat, combine 1/2 cup of sugar with 1/2 cup water. Stir until the sugar is dissolved (2-3 minutes). Remove from heat and stir in the cranberries until they are well coated. Using a colander, drain the liquid from the cranberries. Transfer the cranberries to a wire rack and let dry for at least an hour.
  • Working in small batches, roll the cranberries in the remaining sugar until they are well coated. Let them dry for at least one hour on a wire rack.
  • Store the cranberries in a bowl without a lid. Enjoy as a snack within two days or use as decor for up to two weeks.
