Because of the contrast between the tart cranberries and sugary coating, the flavor of this snack pops in your mouth. You might handle steeping the berries in hot sugar syrup, but after the cranberries have cooled in the refrigerator overnight, let the kids roll them in the superfine sugar. For gift-giving, package in parchment-lined tins.
