Dreidel, dreidel, dreidellll.. sing it out while eating edible dreidels. Culinary mishegas.
  • 12 large marshmallows
  • 12 pretzel sticks
  • 12 Hershey's kisses, unwrapped
  • 1 bag blue candy melts
  • 2 squares white chocolate
  1. First, line a baking sheet with foil for easy cleanup. Take a pretzel stick and gently press it into one of the flat sides of the marshmallow, careful not to skewer the mallow completely.
  2. Melt one square of white chocolate in the microwave until smooth. Gently dip the flat part of a Hershey kiss into the white chocolate and press to adhere to the flat bottom of the marshmallow, holding carefully for about 15-20 seconds. Repeat with remaining dreidels, then freeze the dreidels to set the kisses, about 15 minutes.
  3. While the dreidels are setting up, you can make your symbols. I printed out sample Gimel and Hay symbols from Google for a reference guide. Lay out wax paper on a flat surface and microwave the additional white chocolate. Pour the melted chocolate in a plastic baggy, seal, then snip off a tiny corner.
  4. Pipe the symbols carefully onto the wax paper. You could also try piping the Star of David, too! Allow the symbols to set.
  5. Now melt your candy melts. Dip each dreidel into the blue candy melts, allowing excess to drip off. Return to the baking sheet. Once the dreidels have been dipped and the blue melts have set, carefully remove the symbols and attach them VERY carefully to the dreidels with a little extra blue candy melts (I just got the tip of a toothpick wet, wet the back of the symbol, and very gently attached it to the dreidel). Once the symbols are set, you're ready to serve!!
  6. **Note: this recipe is easily doubled or tripled--just make as many as you'd like an adjust the candy melts and white chocolate accordingly.
  7. I chose to pipe two of the four dreidel symbols (I chose the ones that had the best winning rewards) :) Gimel stands for "gantz" which means all--you win the entire pot. Hay/hey stands for "halb" which means half--you win half of the pot, plus any oddball tokens. I found this info HERE.**
