Cranberry Gumdrops


This unique treat combines two holiday favorites— the tangy flavor of cranberry and a sweet chewy candy.



  1. In a saucepan, sprinkle unflavored gelatine over water; let stand for 2 minutes to soften.
  2. Add cranberry sauce and 1 cup granulated sugar; cook over low heat until sauce is melted and sugar is dissolved, about 10 minutes.
  3. Whisk until smooth. Remove from the heat and add raspberry gelatin; stir until completely dissolved, about 3 minutes.
  4. Pour into an 8-inch square baking pan coated with nonstick cooking spray.
  5. Cover and let stand at room temperature for 12 hours or overnight (do not refrigerate).
  6. Cut into 1-inch squares; roll in remaining sugar. Place on baking sheets; let stand at room temperature for 3 hours.
  7. Turn pieces over and let stand 3 hours longer.
  8. Roll in additional sugar if desired.
  9. Store in an airtight container at room temperature.

Yield: about 5 dozen
