And you thought Hanukkah was all latkes and applesauce: Passed down from my Bronx-raised mother, these sweet and savory Dreidel-Mallows
are not only delicious, but insanely easy to make. So easy that my mom forced me make them and take them to school to share every year from 2nd to 5th grade. Thanks mom!
This will cover enough dreidels to wow your Jewish and non Jewish friends alike.
- One bag Hershey's milk chocolate kisses
- One package classic style pretzel sticks
- 2 packages of regular sized marshmallows
- 1 can Pillsbury chocolate fudge frosting
- Stick pretzel stick into the flat side of a marshmallow.
- Use knife to draw four stripes of chocolate frosting on marshmallow, to represent the four dreidel symbols. If you are more ambitious, you can make the dreidel symbols of gimmel, shin, hay and nun with frosting. If you don't know what those symbols are, consult a Jewish friend or the internet.
- Slather the other flat side of the marshmallow with frosting
- Stick a Hershey's kiss onto the frosting. Now your creation resembles a dreidel!
- Repeat as needed.
Here's a cool, but really sacrilegious idea: dreidel making + nearby menorah = s'mores.
