    Tearanii's Note:

    Because of the contrast between the tart cranberries and sugary coating, the flavor of this snack pops in your mouth. The berries are steeped in hot sugar syrup to tame their tangy bite. When entertaining, serve these in place of nuts. For gift-giving, package in parchment-lined tins. Present with a small bottle of the reserved cranberry cooking syrup for the recipient to use as a cocktail mixer. If you can't find superfine sugar, make your own by processing granulated sugar in a food processor for a minute

      These are WONDERFUL & beautiful! I have a hard time keeping out of them as I am making them. They are a wonderful snack to put out around the holidays. Next time I am going to try cutting the sugar syrup in half orange juice, plus some zest. I think this will give them a nicer overall flavor. Thanks!!!!

      We all love cranberries. My boys and I couldn't stay out of these. A nice treat that has some food value. I froze my syrup to make them again, or it would be good to make any drink that requires a simple syrup. I doubled the berries but not the syrup, I put a plate in the bowl weighted with a glass to keep them submerged. I also left them longer since I was at work but they still turned out great. I will be taking these to my class tonight for a little pick-me-up! Thanks for the great treat!

      These are wonderful little bites of sweet/tart with a POP! This same recipe is on Diana's Desserts and says it was taken from Cooking Light-Dec/03. I am going to use these to top my other cranberry creations. They are as pretty as they are tasty. I saw a beautiful orange/cranberry bundt cake in Family Circle Magazine that was topped by sugared cranberries. So pretty! Also, since I had so much syrup left over, I dipped some green grapes into it then rolled in same sugar, let them dry, and they turned out beautifully! Give them a try!
