Ingredients

  • 2 envelopes unflavored gelatin
  • 1/2 cup cold water
  • 1 can (16 ounce) jellied cranberry sauce
  • 2 cups sugar, divided
  • 3 packages (3 ounces each) raspberry gelatin
  • Additional sugar, optional

Directions

  1. In a saucepan, sprinkle unflavored gelatin over water; let stand for 2 minutes to soften. Add cranberry sauce and 1 cup of sugar; cook over low heat until sauce is melted and sugar is dissolved, about 10 minutes. Whisk until smooth.
  2. Remove from the heat and add raspberry gelatin; stir until completely dissolved, about 3 minutes. Pour into an 8-in. square dish coated with cooking spray. Cover and let stand at room temperature for 12 hours or overnight (do not refrigerate).
  3. Cut into 1-in. squares; roll in remaining sugar. Place on baking sheets; let stand at room temperature for 3 hours. Turn pieces over and let stand 3 hours longer. Roll in additional sugar if desired. Store in an airtight container at room temperature.
