This festive sugared garnish is a great topper for cakes, cupcakes, cookies and even cocktails. We use them to top our Mini Eggnog Bundt Cakes! Be sure to save the leftover syrup — it’s a great addition to holiday cocktails!
In a medium pot, combine ½ cup of the sugar and ½ cup of water. Bring to a boil over moderate heat, stirring to help the sugar dissolve. Turn off the heat and add the cranberries and rosemary. Turn off the heat and let cool in the syrup for at least 30 minutes and up to overnight.
Spread the remaining ½ cup of sugar in a shallow bowl. Drain the cranberries and rosemary from the syrup with a slotted spoon, letting any excess syrup drip back into the pot, and add to the sugar. Toss until well coated in sugar. Transfer to a large parchment paper-lined plate and let cool until hardened.
