  1. Step 1

    Heat sugar and water in a small saucepan over medium heat; cook and stir until the sugar has dissolved, about 3 minutes. Remove syrup from heat and allow to cool until lukewarm. Add cranberries to syrup and carefully stir to coat. Cover and refrigerate 8 hours to overnight.
  2. Step 2

    Sprinkle a baking sheet with sugar and line a second baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Step 3

    Drain cranberries well and spread out onto the sugar-covered baking sheet. Roll in the sugar and transfer cranberries to the parchment-lined baking sheet in a single layer. Allow to dry for 3 hours.
