As an accompaniment to dinner or dessert ~~ delicicous either way.

Use your favorite muffin mix to make a cranberry surprise. Place a tablespoon or so of muffin batter into the muffin tin, drop two or three small cubes of cut-up jellied cranberry sauce in, then top off the muffin batter as usual, covering the suprise.
