Thanksgiving Treats: Sparkling Sugar Cranberries

19 Nov

Good afternoon friends and happy Monday!  It is raining like CRAZY here and the weather forecast says 100% chance of rain for the next few days.  Looks like I will be spending my days inside with a cozy blanket and a hot beverage.  My second round of coffee is brewing right now!

Can you believe Thanksgiving is this week!  Time is just flying by.  In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I wanted to post another fun treat I found for the big dinner.  As I shared before, I have been scouring the internet for fun Thanksgiving ideas (last week I posted this apple cake recipe) and I thought this simple cranberry recipe would be fun to try.

This Sparkling Sugar Cranberries recipe can be found on A Cup of Mascarpone right here.  I think this would be a fabulous appetizer or a great alternative to the traditional cranberries side dish.  Raw cranberries have lots of nutrients, making this a perfect (semi) healthy option.  And, they look so pretty too!

Do you like trying new recipes for Thanksgiving, or would you prefer to stick with the classics?

Happy cooking!
