Ingredients

  • 2 cups cranberries
  • cups icing sugar or white sugar sifted
  • ½ cups white sugar for syrup
  • ¼ cup water

Instructions

  • Dissolve ½ cup sugar and water in a saucepan, heating up over medium until the sugar syrup is completely dissolved. Hot but not boiling.
  • In small batches, gently place the cranberries into the sugar syrup and mix until coated. Remove the cranberries with a slotted spoon and place on parchment paper (or on a wire baking rack).
  • Place the sifted icing sugar or white sugar into a bowl. Place a few cranberries at a time into the icing sugar. Don't allow the sticky cranberries to touch each other. Sprinkle with more icing sugar to cover the cranberries and roll them around in the sugar until they are completely coated. Place them on fresh parchment paper and allow them to harden up and set for at least 1 hour.
