Fun dreidel snack for Hanukkah parties
These dreidel crispy cakes are fun to make – and to eat!
:: 50g butter plus extra for greasing
:: 300g marshmallows*
:: 200g rice crispy cereal
:: wooden spoon
:: 25cm square baking tin
:: non-stick parchment
:: metal spoon
:: blue frosting
:: toothpick or skewer
:: chocolate sticks (Matchsticks, Poccys or Mikado)
*Kosher brands of marshmallows include Eskal, Freedom Confectionary, and Paskesz
Grease the baking tin with butter and line the base with non-stick baking parchment.
Melt 50g of butter and 300g of marshmallows in a large pan.
Add in 200g of rice crispy cereal and stir well with a wooden spoon so all the cereal is coated in the marshmallow mix.
Tip the mixture into a baking tin and use a metal spoon to press down and level the top.
Place in the fridge until set.
Then tip the crispy cake out of the tin and use a knife to cut it into small rectangles. Cut off two corners to make the little dreidel shapes.
Drizzle on some blue icing/frosting.
Use a toothpick or skewer to make a small hole in the top of each dreidel. Then gently push in a piece of a chocolate stick to give your spinning top a handle.
