This salad is bursting with fruit and nuts, and is a great holiday side dish.

Cranberry Sangria

A spiced Cranberry Sangria is perfect for any fall or winter holiday celebration.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • Instead of waxed paper, a silicone pan can also be used. These don't store well for extended periods and may need to be rerolled in additional sugar. I don't like nuts in these, but the rest of the family uses walnuts.

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!

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.

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. :)
