As we start prepping for Hanukkah (tomorrow!) why not make the celebration of lights even sweeter with edible dreidels! Nicolle of Libby Lane Press, here sharing my simple tutorial for crafting dreidels out of salty and sweet treats.

This Marshmallow Dreidel DIY incorporates marshmallows, Hershey kisses, pretzel sticks, blue sprinkles and white frosting acting as ‘glue’. Not only is this a creative craft great for a play date or holiday celebration, but can also be festive a classroom treat during the holidays!

3. Break a thin pretzel rod in half and dip the broken end into the white frosting. Stick the frosting-dipped end into the flat side of the marshmallow to create the handle for the dreidel.

4. Holding the pretzel stick, roll the marshmallow in the sprinkles again to fully cover

5. Apply a small dab of white frosting to the Hershey Kiss and affix to the other flat side of the marshmallow to create the ‘spinner’.

While the marshmallows I used for this tutorial are not kosher, I did this activity in the past at a nursery school and purchased kosher marshmallows from the kosher market.
