Glazed Cranberries

Fresh cranberries are rolled in sparkling granulated sugar for a beautiful sweet-tart fall candy. The sugary coating is crunchy, while the fresh berry inside bursts with juice when you bite into it.

Use glazed cranberries to add a beautiful decorative touch to autumn desserts like cakes, tarts, and cupcakes, or serve them with a meal as an alternative to cranberry sauce.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 10 minutes


  • 1 egg white
  • 1/2 tsp water
  • 1 cup fresh whole cranberries
  • 1 cup granulated sugar


1. Prepare a baking sheet by lining it with aluminum foil. Place the sugar in a shallow bowl and set aside.

2. Place the egg white and water in a small bowl and whisk until foamy.

3. Working with a handful of cranberries at a time, dunk them in the egg white mixture until they're entirely coated. Roll the wet cranberries in the sugar, then place them on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with remaining cranberries. Try to remove any large sugar clumps while they're still wet, as they will harden and dry onto the cranberries.

4. Allow the berries to dry at room temperature, several hours or overnight. Store the berries in an airtight tupperware container in the refrigerator. Properly stored, they will keep for several days.
