No, not my mom. Not really sure WHOSE mom. Like lots of my recipes, this has been floating around the CLBB, highly recommended, for several years.
I mentioned in my last post that I wanted to try more cranberry recipes so when person after person raved about this recipe I knew it was worth a try.
I didnt do much to change the original ingredients, I just subbed mini chocolate chips for the nuts. I was surprised when the chip all floated to the bottom and gathered in a group, but not all surprises are bad!
Be warned, it is sticky sweet. The orange juice makes it quite moist, but also makes for a sweet contrast for the tart cranberry pieces.
And I must tell you, it is beautiful to look at!
