Chocolate Dipped Cranberry Cookies

Pat Duran


This recipe is from Ocean Spray Cranberry awhile back -I got this recipe from the Ocean Spray processing/distribution store here in Las Vegas.. before they closed the viewing process window.. there was a wonderful gift shop- I also bought some cranberry wine vinegar.The lobster bottle shape won the 1992 Clear Choice Award for design. Conceived by Chatham Winery of Cape Cod, this unique package has become their trademark. It is so good.. the bottle is in the shape of a lobster... great making a sauce for dipping in pieces of steamed lobster...also for marinades, salads and grilling...
