Baked nuggets are filled with strawberry jam and rolled in confectioners' sugar. A cellophane bag shows them off and keeps the sugar from getting all over. Tags are computer-made, cut out, hole-punched, and tied on with waxed twine.
Eating fried foods is, of course, one of Hanukkah's delicious traditions. Sufganiyot, or jelly doughnuts, can be given out as party favors when arranged in cupcake liners and packaged in cellophane bags. These are sealed with double-sided tape and finished with patterned pastel paper. If you're making the nondairy version, reduce the amount of salt to 3/4 teaspoon.
These deep-fried Israeli delicacies symbolize the miracle of the burning oil lamps in the ancient Holy Temple in Jerusalem. Plump up each fried dough ball with your favorite fruit jam. For a wintry effect, sprinkle the tops with granulated sugar.
