Marshmallow Dreidels for Chanukah

Tonight is the first night of Chanukah! Here is one quick and super easy dessert I will be bringing to my family's Chanukah party this evening.

What you need:
  • Wax or parchment paper
  • Cookie Sheet
  • Microwave safe bowl
  •  1 1/4 cups chocolate chips or candy melts (I used chocolate chips)
  • 12 large marshmallows
  • 12 thin long pretzel sticks, salted or unsalted
  • 12 chocolate kisses
  • 1 tube white icing for the Hebrew letters
  1. Line a baking sheet with the wax or parchment paper
  2. Insert a pretzel stick into each of the marshmallows, you will want the pretzel to go in almost to the bottom of the marshmallow. I then cut off the top of the pretzel stick so the "dreidel top" wasn't too long
  3. In a microwave safe bowl, melt the chocolate chips or candy melts. Do not over heat or they will begin to burn.
  4. Stir the chocolate chips or candy melts, then dip the bottom of a chocolate chip into the melted chocolate and stick it onto the bottom of the marshmallow, on the opposite side of where you have inserted the pretzel stick
  5. Place the marshmallow on its side on the wax or parchment paper to allow the chocolate kiss to set. Repeat with the remaining marshmallows
  6. Place the cookie sheet into the fridge for 30 minutes to ensure the kisses stay attached to the marshmallow
  7. Reheat the chocolate chips or candy melts so that it is soft again. Using the pretzel stick as a handle, dip each of the treats into the chocolate so that it is coated up to the top of the marshmallow
  8. Place the dipped desserts back onto your lined baking sheet and repeat with the remaining marshmallows
  9. Put the cookie sheet back into the fridge for 30 minutes so that the outer shell of chocolate can set
  10. Taking your white icing tube and add Hebrew letters onto one side of the dreidels
  11. Let the dreidels set for 30 minutes
  12. Serve and enjoy!
