Commemorate Hanukkah at Your Holiday Party with Edible Dreidels! Great Gift Giving Idea Too


Colossal Christmas Countdown Holiday EventEdible Dreidels!

Dreidel, dreidel, dreidel - I made it out of...marshmallows.  For an easy spin on the Hanukkah top, whip up these fun, kid-friendly treats.  Marshmallows form the dreidels' bodies, chocolate kisses serve as the tips, and pretzel sticks act as the knobs.  A quick dip in melted chocolate provides a surface for piping white-chocolate Hebrew letters.


  1. Dip bottom of 1 chocolate kiss in 8 ounces melted semisweet chocolate.  Press onto 1 marshmallow; transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  2. Repeat to make 12 dreidels.  Refrigerate for 10 minutes.  Cut a small slit in bottom of each marshmallow; insert 1 thin pretzel stick.
  3. Dip dreidels in chocolate, and return to baking sheet.  Refrigerate until set, about 15 minutes. 
  4. Fill a resealable plastic bag with 2 ounces melted white chocolate; cut a tiny opening in 1 corner, and pipe Hebrew letters onto 3 sides of each dreidel.  Refrigerate at least 5 minutes or up to 8 hours before serving.  Makes 12.

I'm a former 7th grade Science teacher turned stay-at-home mom that lives in Houston, Texas. I am married to my college sweetheart and have a beautiful daughter named Riley, who definitely keeps me on my toes! I am also involved in starting a small business which would both manufacture and sell an invention that I've patented, called Toothpaste 2 Go. I love interacting with my readers and hope to learn as much about you as you learn about me!
