The Festive Party Snack: Candied Cranberries

James Ransom

Need a holiday hand? We've got you covered with two straight weeks of Holiday Survival Recipes -- the ones you can rely on to keep your guests (and you) feeling festive.

Today: The festive party snack.

Orange Blossom Candied Cranberries

We're always a fan of three-ingredient recipes.

But when said three-ingredient recipe is beautiful, special, snack-able, dessert-able, and holiday-party-worthy all at once, you've got us swooning.

Making these Orange Blossom Candied Cranberries by CozyDelicious is easy: just soak the cranberries in a simple syrup, and then roll them in sugar. (If you can't find orange blossom water, dont sweat it -- you can leave it out.) Then: pile them into glass bowls as both a centerpiece and a snack; sprinkle them onto cakes or ice cream; float them in a glass of bubbly or your favorite winter cocktail.

Or, you could just eat them by the handful. We won't tell.
