Even though I followed the recipe, my end product could not be cut into squares! I had to spoon the mixture onto the extra sugar, and roll the pieces around. These were easy to make, and have great taste! I'll have to make more!


FANTASTIC! I could've eaten the syrup, that's how good it smelled/tasted, lol. I did not add the optional nuts, b/c I don't think I would've cared for that. After pouring it into the pan, I let it set 2 days to make sure it was nice and set up. I did spray my chef's knife w/ cooking spray, just to make cutting a bit easier, and that worked great. These are nice and jelly-like, but also soft with a sweet/tart flavor that is just wonderful, and so simple to make too! I will def be making these again and again~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)


For those having trouble, make sure that you're using 16 oz. of cranberry sauce. They have changed the size of the cans now, and they only come with 14 oz.
