These Dreidel Shaped Snacks can really be made with anything...apples and dates, Larabars, and even sandwiches! It's a fun way to make snack or lunchtime feel special and kids go crazy for anything themed.
These Dreidel Shaped Snacks are so fun to make! A dreidel is a really easy shape to cut, so you can make them with almost anything! I cut these into different sizes with slices of apple or pear, Larabars, and soft pitted Medjool dates. The tops of the dreidels are made from pretzel sticks, and then I made the Hebrew letters with some melted chocolate and apple peels.
I also cut dreidels out of sandwiches! It was fun to have the kids form the Hebrew letters out of blueberries. These Snacking Dreidels can really be made with whatever you have on hand, so get creative, get the kids involved, and have fun with these Hanukkah snacks! Make sure to tag me on Instagram if you make these so I can see your cute creations.

These Dreidel Shaped Snacks can really be made with anything...apples and dates, Larabars, and even sandwiches!
- Use any of the above ingredients and cut them into the shape of a dreidel.
- For the pears I sliced them top down and they naturally made the shape of a dreidel. I saved small slices of pear to make the dreidel's top and Hebrew letters.
- For the dates, I squeezed the smaller side into a point and stuck half a pretzel stick into the other side.
- For the Larabars, I cut each bar into two dreidel shapes (I snacked on the pieces I didn't need). I then stuck a small piece of a pretzel stick into the top of the Larabar dreidel. I used a chopstick to write the hebrew letters on the Larabar. I dipped the tip of the chopstick in melted chocolate and used it like a pen.
- For the dreidel sandwiches, I stack two pieces of bread and then cut them into dreidel shapes with a knife. I then add the almond butter and raspberry chia jam and make a sandwich. On the top I arrange the blueberries in the Hebrew letters that appear on the dreidel. I save the scrap pieces of bread and make mini sandwiches too.
Another fun idea: vegan cheese cubes or cheese sticks cut into 3-D dreidel shapes with a pretzel stick stuck into the top.
