Easy peasy.

Sugared Cranberry Brie Bites:

1. Buy wheat crackers. Round crackers give a nice aesthetic appeal.

2. Milk cow for cheese. Wait. What?

Excuse me.

3. Go to grocery store and pick out a nice brie. Better?

4. Sugar your cranberries:

Simple Syrup: Over medium heat, combine 1/2 cup water and 1/2 cup white sugar. Sir until combined. Take off heat. Pour in a bag of cranberries, just to coat (not to cook.) Using a slotted spoon, lay cranberries on a drying rack for ONE HOUR, at least. The cranberries should slightly sticky dry, but not wet.

Next, pour some sugar into a bowl. Pour cranberries into bowl to coat. And that’s it. Really.

Now, let’s sing – FA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LAAAAAA…it’s sugared cranberry brie bite time!
