You just need 2-ingredients to make these sparkling sugared cranberries. They are perfect for holiday snacking or decorating your holiday desserts!
I love cooking and decorating with cranberries, like these DIY Cranberry Jewelry and Cranberry Bliss Toffee. It is funny how there are so smells and foods that remind me of the holidays. Cranberries are one of them. I also like to heat them up so that you can make your home smell like the holidays with this Fall Stove Top Potpourri
I have never tried to make sugared cranberries before, but I love the look of them. I especially love them on top of a simple white cake. They were simple to make and look so festive.
