Try spraying your hands with vegetable spray as a way of manipulating the dried fruit better.
It was a little hard to stir all the ingredients together; the cranberries tended to bunch up together. I just kept a wet cloth nearby and dabbed my hands on it to help mold the candies together and separate the cranberries. That sweet & salty taste together is excellent. I intend to use these candies in gift baskets so they look very festive in shiny silver candy holders. I will make this again.
