Marshmallow and Chocolate Dreidel Candies

Chocolate Kisses-4-6  melted and the rest whole

Bag of large marshmallows (not giant ones but not mini)

Thin pckretzel sticks or thin, chocolate covered candy sticks

Tube of writing gel (any color)

  1. Unwrap the kisses and melt about 4-6 of them in a small dish in the microwave. Stir until smooth.
  2. Dip the flat end of a kiss into the melted chocolate and then gently “glue” it on to the bottom of a Marshmallow.  Hold for a few seconds so that the kiss doesn’t fall off.  Repeate with as many marshmallows as you want.
  3. When firm, press a pretzel stick or 2 inch piece of candy stick into the opposite end of the marshmallow.
  4. Using your writing gel, write one of the Hebrew letters of the dreidel onto the side of the marshmallow. A Shin is the easiest because it looks like a W but look on line for the modern Hebrew print and procede to decorate the other marshmallows with one or all of the Hebrew letters.
  5. Place dreidels on a wire rack until gel is completely dry and then place near or in your cookie box for all to enjoy.


Tina’s Tidbits:

  • You can create any number of decorations from this recipe. Keep the kiss on the top and then draw a face on the marshmallow to look like a clown.
  • Have children decorate the marshmallows after you help them dip the kiss into the hot melted chocolate. They can use any color in the box of gels and it creates a great activity for all of you to share.
  • I prefer to melt small quantities of chocolate in the microwave in 30 second bursts rather than in a double boiler where the chocolate can get caught in the crevises.
