Honey Cranberry & Yogurt

This is a simple yet so festive looking dessert to serve during Christmas.
I have a soft spot whenever I see fresh cranberries as I like to make some cranberry sauce to serve along with some roasted meat, ham or baking (shared previously here ).

Tweaked the recipe a little by adding some honey and reduced the amount of sugar.

Honey Cranberry & Yogurt 
250g fresh cranberries
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
100g Honey
About 100 - 120ml water
1 tablespoon Grand Marnier

Wash clean the cranberries and combine all ingredients (except Grand Marnier) in a saucepan.
Cook over medium heat until the cranberries start to pop (about 10 minutes). Stirring occasionally.
Remove from heat, stir in Grand Marnier. Cranberry sauce will thicken as it cools.
Cover and store in the refrigerator.
*Do adjust the sweetness and texture to your preference.

To assemble the dessert:
A tub of yogurt  (any flavor)
In individual serving cup, add one tablespoon of cranberry sauce and a tablespoon of yogurt layer.
Repeat steps and top with some berries and chopped nuts, seeds and raisins if you like when serving the desserts.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you & family!
