DIY Marshmallow Dreidels

While the holidays have changed this year, having family fun-time during them doesn’t have to. Check out this fun Hanukkah-themed treat that you can do with your little ones!

This treat was inspired by Hostess with the Mostess’ take on the recipe.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • Pretzel Sticks
  • Marshmallows (regular sized)
  • Hershey Kisses
  • Blue Sanding Sugar or Blue Sprinkles
  • Milk
  • Winter or Hanukkah Themed Paper Plates

The How-To:

Step 1: Stick a pretzel stick through the marshmallow. You can put it either all the way through or you can put it two thirds of the way through. If you decide to stick it all the way through, you’ll want to push it back down to where the tip of the pretzel stick is covered by the marshmallow.

Step 2: Heat 2-3 marshmallows in the microwave for 5 seconds max. You want the marshmallows gooey but you don’t want them to “explode” and make a mess in your microwave. Then you want to add two tablespoons of milk to the gooey marshmallow and stir.

Step 3: Use a butter knife to take a little bit of the gooey marshmallow mixture and put it on top of the marshmallow pretzel sticks.

Step 4: Stick a Hershey’s kiss candy on the gooey spot on top of the marshmallow.

Step 5: Use the butter knife to put a tiny amount of the marshmallow mixture on the outside of the dreidel on the side facing up to coat it.

Step 6: Sprinkle the blue sanding sugar or the blue sprinkles over the dreidel.

Step 7: Voila! You have your very own marshmallow dreidels that people of any age are bound to love! Happy Hanukkah!
