I made it out of... marshmallows. For an easy spin on the Hanukkah top, whip up these fun, kid-friendly treats. Marshmallows form the dreidels' bodies, chocolate kisses serve as the tips, and pretzel sticks act as the knobs. A quick dip in melted chocolate provides a surface for piping white-chocolate Hebrew letters.
Potato pancakes, also called latkes, are a traditional Hanukkah treat. For sweetness and color (as well as beta carotene), carrots have been added. Whereas traditional latkes are deep-fried in oil, these lighter latkes are panfried, then finished in a hot oven until they are crispy. Plain yogurt makes a healthy stand-in for a traditional accompaniment, sour cream.

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.
