Sugared Cranberries are a simple and gorgeous treat! With only three ingredients, these beautiful candied cranberries recipe will be your go-to garnish or snack this holiday season.
- 12 ounces fresh cranberries
- 2 cups white sugar divided
Heat 1/2 cup water and 1/2 cup sugar over medium high heat in a medium saucepan. The water will be very shallow. Stir to combine and bring to a simmer. Make sure the sugar has fully dissolved. Once simmering, remove from the heat and stir in the cranberries. Stir to coat the cranberries completely in the water. Allow to sit for 10 minutes.
Line a baking sheet with wax paper. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the cranberries to the baking sheet and allow to dry for a minimum of 30 minutes. Lay the cranberries as flat (single layer) as possible.
After 30 minutes to an hour, pour the remaining sugar over the cranberries, using a wooded spoon, stir the cranberries to coat completely.
Let the cranberries dry on the counter for another hour. When the sugar is dried on the cranberries, they're done!
