Sugared Cranberries Recipe - These sparkly sugared cranberries come together quickly and easily with just two simple ingredients! Beautiful as garnish for cakes, cookies, cocktails, or to serve as a sweet, yet tart treat!
Combine 1/2 cup sugar and 1/2 cup water in a medium saucepan set over medium heat. Stir until the sugar is completely dissolved, about 3 minutes. Add the cranberries and stir until well coated. Transfer the coated cranberries, using a slotted spoon, to a wire rack situated over a baking sheet. Let dry until the cranberries are just tacky to the touch, about 30 minutes.
Working in batches, roll the cranberries in a bowl of the remaining sugar until well coated, return to the wire rack and let dry completely.
Roll the cranberries in the remaining 1 1/2 cups sugar until well coated; let dry for at least 1 hour.
Store in an airtight container in a cool place for up to a week.
