      Hey, flread45, thanks for the excellent tips! I'm going to get a candy thermometer and dip everything in chocolate, now. On second thought, perhaps that isn't the best idea. I'd love to try these chocolate dipped cranberries, though.

      That looks good. We have high brush cranberries here in Manitoba. Too small for covering with chocolate. When you walk through the deer woods on a cold November day, they are a thirst quenching treat.
