Cranberries are one of those things I don’t use a whole lot because it’s hard to find fresh ones unless it’s November or December.  I guess I could get frozen ones but I don’t see them by themselves.   The frozen ones are usually with other fruits.   What we do eat a lot of are Craisins.   J often has some for breakfast, I like to add them to salads, and they are great for baking with.

That’s why when I started thinking about what to make for Cranberry Week I knew it was probably going to have dried cranberries in it since that’s what we have around the house.  Dried cranberries are super easy to bake with.  I always like the combination of chocolate and cranberries so these Chocolate Cranberry Blondies were born.

This blondie recipe makes for soft, buttery blondies which are great for adding things too.   In this case I added the dried cranberries and chocolate chips but you can really add 1 cup of anything to these to change up the flavor.   I think I might try white chocolate orange cranberry blondies next time.

Chocolate and cranberry pair up in these delicious blondies

These cookie bars are so good.   They almost melt in your mouth they are so soft.   Then the sweet and tart dried cranberries paired with rich chocolate makes for the perfect holiday treat.  These would be good to package up and give as a holiday gift or to use in a holiday cookie exchange!
