While these sugared cranberries are perfect for topping cakes and other desserts, they are also great for snacking, if you are a fan of the tart-sweet combination.

Put them in a bowl and they can be a nice part of your holiday decor.

I’ll be very quick today, because I’m already in a holiday mood.

I decided to include this recipe, because I used these cranberries to top this beautiful Tangerine layer cake.

This is the first time I made sugared cranberries.

I’ll be honest – I’ve wanted to make them for a while, but don’t ask me why I did not.

I wanted to have them in a separate recipe on the blog, so I can easily link to them, since I’ll be using them in other recipes (mostly for decoration).
