Directions:
1. Combine sugar, cranberries and eggs in a medium saucepan. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until the mixture thickens to a pale yellow.
2. Remove from the heat, stir in pistachios, walnuts, pecans and rum extract. Let stand until cool enough to handle, about 45 minutes.
3. With damp hands, form 1-inch balls (1 teaspoon each) and roll into coconut. Place the finished balls on a baking sheet lined with wax paper and store in the refrigerator.
