Holiday Traditions and Special Recipes

by Sheryl Pidgeon

Since my kids were little, we’ve taken to the kitchen each Hanukkah to create marshmallow dreidels. Turns out the tradition has continued even now that my kids are young adults. Not only are they fun to make and delicious to eat, but they also make a great dessert display at our annual Hanukkah party! 

Marshmallow Driedels from The Pidgeon Family

Marshmallows form the dreidels’ bodies, chocolate kisses serve as the tips, and pretzel sticks act as the knobs. A quick dip in melted white or milk chocolate provides a surface for colorful sprinkles.


One bag of marshmallows

One bag of thin pretzel sticks

One bag of Hershey’s Kisses

One package white chocolate chips

One package milk, semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips

Assorted Sprinkles


Line a baking sheet with waxed or parchment paper.

Using a separate microwave-safe bowl for each type, melt the chocolate chips over low heat, stirring frequently to prevent scorching. Remove from heat.

Spear each marshmallow with a pretzel stick, making sure it goes about 3/4 of the way into the marshmallow. Using the pretzel stick as a handle, dip one of your treats into the chocolate so that it is completely coated.  Adhere a Hershey’s Kiss to the other end of the marshmallow.  Place on lined baking sheet and decorate with sprinkles.

Put the marshmallow dreidels in the fridge for 10 minutes before serving.
