Cranberry Poppers

Recipe by Kathy Moran.

Just when your guests think they've seen it all -- here comes a wonderful and unique cranberry recipe!


  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 bag fresh cranberries (in the produce section)
  • 1 cup superfine or powdered sugar


Dissolve the granulated sugar in water over low heat in a saucepan. Bring to a simmer; remove from heat. (Do not boil — you do not want the cranberries to pop.) Stir in cranberries; pour mixture into a bowl which will be refrigerated for 8 hours.

Drain cranberries. Fill a container or bowl with the superfine or powdered sugar and coat the entire berry with it by rolling it around in the container. Spread out the berries on wax paper and wait for them to dry (about 1 to 2 hours). Keep in a cool, dry place for up to a week before serving.
