Sugared Cranberries

I've discovered a new favorite holiday treat - and it is so easy! All you need is 3 ingredients, and you have a beautiful snack, dessert, or garnish, and a bonus festive syrup to jazz up those holiday cocktails.

All you have to do: make a simple syrup by dissolving 1 cup sugar in 1 cup water and bringing to a simmer. Combine the hot syrup with one bag of cranberries in a heat safe bowl. Refrigerate for 4 hours, then drain off the syrup and toss the cranberries in sugar. Spread out and let dry, and you're done!

(Thanks to Gastronomy Blog for the recipe!)

Don't they look like little sparkly ornaments? (the holiday season makes me extra cheesy)
And the bonus:

A bright red, natural cranberry simple syrup
