Set up the cardboard box or styrofoam on a table near where you are working.
Lay a piece of parchment paper under the box for the excess sugar to drip onto.
Lastly, puncture a few holes for the skewers to be placed.
In a heavy bottom pot place the isomalt and put the pot over medium-high heat.
Allow the isomalt to reach 338°F, about 5 minutes.
Add the food coloring and stir it into the liquid isomalt.
Cool the isomalt to 260°F.
Place a cranberry on the end of a skewer and roll it in the hot isomalt.
Move the Cranberry to the box and place the skewer in a hole and allow it to drip. Snip the strand of isomalt if it gets too long.
Repeat this step with all of the cranberries.
Use these to garnish various types of desserts.
Feel free to replace the cranberries with raw almonds, or other berries or raw nuts for other garnishing option.

I’m ordering the ingredients so I can try it out.
would it be possible to flavor the Isomalt (clear fruit puree, citric acid, etc. and still keep it crunchy?

Yes, you could flavor it with citric acid and flavor drops. But I wouldn’t suggest using fruit puree as it would burn during the heating of the Isomalt.
