EASY Sugared Cranberries

These are the best holiday treat EVER!  If you have never made these, then you are definitely missing out.  My family just doesn’t like these EASY sugared cranberries, they LOVE them!

The sugar dries and makes a hard sugar coat on the outside and when you bite into them you get a little pop of juice and it so good!  My son says, “It’s so satisfying!”.  He gets mad when he bites down and the cranberry has already popped!

These EASY sugared cranberries are the perfect treat for Thanksgiving or Christmas. Make them ahead of time and pull them out to snack on! #Thanksgiving #Thanksgivingrecipe #Christmas #Christmasrecipe #cranberries #SugaredCranberries #Easyholidayfood #holidaymeal #Christmasdinner #Thanksgivingdinner

I don’t know about you, but I always have a bag or two of cranberries in my freezer.  If I think about it, I stock up on the fresh when they have sales during the holidays.  If I miss it, then I can find frozen ones at the grocery store.  I had to call around, but they had it at Harris Teeter here in North Carolina.
