Simple and oh so good - half-frozen, tart cranberries with hot, sweet caramel sauce. A typical Finnish Christmas dessert.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Roll cranberries in powdered sugar and divide between four serving bowls.
  2. To make sauce: Combine cream, granulated sugar and brown sugar in a saucepan and bring the mixture to a boil, stirring. Reduce heat and cook for about 10 minutes, stirring continuously, until the mixture thickens slightly (do not let the sauce get too thick or it might harden into a lump when you pour it onto the cold cranberries!).
  3. Remove from heat, stir in butter and vanilla sugar.
  4. Pour hot sauce over cranberries. Serve immediately.
