When Smirnoff Ice contacted us for some holiday recipes, two with food, and two cocktails, we were excited to try some things out, and we knew right away what we wanted to do with the Strawberry Smirnoff Ice. We knew it would be perfect with some gelatin in a tartlet, plus add some cranberries and whipped cream, and it would be so tasty, so that’s what we did!




This Cranberry Dessert is the perfect finger food for a party or event, are so easy to make, and we can’t wait for you to try them out!

We love how easy this cranberry dessert is, and it is such a sweet and tart combination that works so well together! The touch of orange on the top makes for a great citrus touch, and we encourage you to do the small orange slice or some orange zest. We love using cranberries for the holidays, as they are such a part of a lot of people’s meals and tables.






What Ingredients are Needed for the Berry Bites Dessert?

  • Sugared Cranberries
    • Cranberries
    • Sugar
    • Water
  • Berry Bites Dessert
    • Gelatin
    • Whipped Cream
    • Orange Slices
    • Strawberry Smirnoff Ice
    • Mini Phyllo Cups
    • Water

We use prepared phyllo dough cups to make it even easier, but if you would like to make your own, just form some phyllo dough in a mini muffin tin to make them.

Speaking of the mini muffin tin, it’s easiest to put the gelatin mixture in the phyllo cups while they are placed and steady in the mini muffin tin. This cranberry dessert stays more stable and don’t tip over, just a quick tip from our experience. These little bites are so cute, and you can eat more than one and not feel guilty, right? Right? No judging here!
