Chocolate Covered Cranberry Goodness!

So um, when did it become December and why is it so cold? This Florida girl would like to return there as soon as humanly possible! I loathe standing in the cold wind trying to buckle babies, all of the sickies, the sun setting at 4:30...I especially dislike being stuck indoors with a stir crazy preschooler. My goal this winter is to do some sort of activity with Sawyer everyday and I will do my best to write about the cool ones!

Since we've been watching Christmas movies almost every night, I decided to try a twist on my favorite movie night treat and replace the chocolate-covered raisin with the chocolate-smothered cranberry!

       You will need:

  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate
  • Bag of sweetened cranberries
  • Parchment paper
  • 1 very eager little helper

Melt chocolate in the microwave or a double boiler. 

Have helper add cranberries and coat them with chocolate.

Fish out the coated cranberries, letting the excess drip off and lay them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Let them cool in the fridge for about half an hour. 

By this time your eager little helper will have mutated into this:

But you'll have a yummy, edible treat!

They would make a great gift too!
