Cranberries are becoming increasingly popular because they are just so darn good for you! Packed with nutrients, vitamin C, fiber and antioxidants, this little super fruit is a great choice when you’re picking healthier snacks and drinks. While it may not be super healthy when mixed in heavy cream and sugar (yum!), it’s still a better option than other fruits. That’s why these next desserts are all cute and fun ways to incorporate cranberries into your mini creations!
What’s better than baked desserts? Desserts that you don’t have to bake! These mini cheesecakes are so cute! The crust is made from crispy gingersnap cookies and pumpkin pie spice; the cheesecake is made of cream cheese with flavoring from confectioner’s sugar, orange zest, and vanilla; and the topping is decadent cranberry sauce! What could be more simple than this? I can’t wait to gobble this up.
