Mmmmmm, these were tasty. They were nice and tart with a sweet outside. I made them exactly as directed. It made a lot of the syrup, but it worked out well because I made a second batch and only had to add more cranberries to the syrup that I already had. I didn't have superfine sugar, so I put the sugar in the blender for a minute or so. It worked fine. Thanks for the recipe.

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!

I've made this every Thanksgiving and Christmas since 2003 - It's enjoyed by ALL - vegetarians, vegans, celiacs, kids, elderly relatives and me! I save the cranberried sugar syrup to make pink lemonade (1 part syrup; 1 part fresh lemon juice; 2 parts water).

These are wonderful! I tried making them last year, but could not find cranberries anywhere. They were on my "definately try" list for this year. I am putting them in votive holders for neighbor gifts. Thank you!

Fabulous looking cranberries. They look so festive. Very easy to do. I halved the sugar and water. There was plenty of syrup for the amount of cranberries. Thank you.

I can't believe I've waited so long to rate this fabulous recipe. I've made it about 10 times! Everyone who has tasted this loves it and wants to know how its made. I myself am addicted to these little suckers! Sweet and then tart - a little crunchy...yum! And these look so pretty in little glass bowls.

I made these with regular sugar last year - they were awesome! I tried someone's suggestion of placing some on skewers, they made a beautiful centerpiece, surrounded by regular berries; but the juice dripped where the skewer poked them, so they didn't last as long. This year I am making a double batch for Thanksgiving and Christmas, and don't plan on using skewers.
