I'm always looking for new and beautiful ways to decorate my desserts. I try and stay away from decorating with fondant - since most people are opposed to eating it. The goal is to find decorations that are beautiful AND delicious. HELLO - Sugared Cranberries!!!
These tangy little treats are the perfect way to decorate a Christmas cupcake, a festive cake, a cheesecake or even a holiday drink. These sugared cranberries make any dessert look elegant and fancy but the truth is ... they're SUPER easy to make. (Like 2 ingredients easy!)
2 cups sugar
1 cup water
12 ounce package cranberries
Stir in cranberries and coat with syrup.
Put a rack on a foil lined baking sheet. Spread cranberries on rack to dry. Allow to dry 30 minutes.
Fill a dish with 1 cup sugar. Working in batches, roll cranberries in sugar to coat.
Now add to your favorite desserts. (Or store in a covered bowl in the refrigerator for up to a week.)
I love decorating my Christmas treats with these sugared cranberries. I put a couple on top of a batch of white chocolate cranberry cupcakes last week (Sorry forgot to get a picture of those) and I used them on my cheesecake squares too. Just in case you're looking for that cheesecake recipe - you can check in out here.
