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.

I think a bit of Gran Marnier and water would be quite tasy!
