Cranberry Candle Cups


  • Delicious recipe Prep time: 5 minutes


4-6 clear martini glasses or wine goblets

1 12-oz. bag Ocean Spray® Fresh Cranberries

4-6 votive candles*

Greenery or flowers, if desired


Fill glasses 2/3 full with fresh cranberries. Nestle a votive candle on top of the cranberries. If desired, add a few blossoms or sprigs of greenery.

Be careful to keep lit flames from directly touching the cranberries; the heat of the flame could cause the berries to burst. Do not leave lit candles unattended. Discard berries when they become soft, which can range from a few days to about a week.

* Variation: To use taper candles, start with empty glasses. Use candle putty to secure candle to the bottom of the glass (glasses with a flat bottom work best). Add fresh cranberries around the sides of the candle, filling 2/3 full.

Thanks to your warning about cranberries bursting if flame touches them, I've decided to try this with taper candles, thus avoiding that problem. I can't wait to see how pretty it looks!
