Edible Craft: Marshmallow Dreidels for Hanukkah

Martha Stewart Kids

Hanukkah starts at sundown on Friday, December 11th, so for those of you celebrating, the planning/cooking may have already begun. We think making these marshmallow dreidels would keep kids occupied even longer than playing with an actual dreidel. That is, until they eat them. Get the instructions below.

The team at Martha Stewart must have a thing for marshmallow dreidels, because these aren't the only ones the magazine has featured. These are from a past issue, but the current holiday issue has some chocolate-covered marshmallow dreidels that look fantastic (but, sadly, aren't yet available online).

Both types follow the same method: Spray some clean kitchen shears with cooking spray and cut a big marshmallow into a square. For the ones above, you attach a skewer and then dip the sticky sides of the marshmallow into colored sprinkles. The tip is a nonpareil chocolate.

For the chocolate version that's in the current issue, you use a pretzel as the stick, dip the marshmallow in chocolate, and attach a Hershey's Kiss for the tip (if memory serves... the magazine wasn't ours).

Has anyone ever made marshmallow dreidels? Any other variations to share?
