My favorite way to get kids involved in the kitchen is to make themed holiday treats! These Hanukkah Snacks are made with some of our favorite foods and arranged into the best shapes of the season. Menorahs, dreidels, and the Star of David are all here and they're so tasty!
Let's have some Fun with Hanukkah Snacks!
This month I've had WAY too much fun making Hanukkah snacks with my little ones. Maybe you've seen some of our favorites on Instagram! We've made Stars of David, dreidels, and menorahs for different snacks and it's become a great way to learn more about Hanukkah traditions and get the kids helping in the kitchen. They love assembling each shape, and of course, eating them! If you're wanting to make some seasonal treats that children will love, check out these fun Hanukkah snack ideas!
Chocolate Pretzel Star of David
Each one of these Chocolate Pretzel Stars of Davids is made from six pretzels and melted chocolate. Start by arranging chocolate-dipped pretzels in a triangle, then arrange three more in an upside-down triangle on top of it. Kids love helping with these Hanukkah snacks, and it's great for learning shapes! I love finishing these off with a sprinkle of dye-free blue and white sprinkles and putting them in the refrigerator to set.
Veggie Menorah Snack
This is no harder than cutting veggies for snacks--it's all in the way you arrange them on the plate! Make one menorah to demonstrate and then let your little ones help make their own. Just make sure you have one longer celery slice for the shamash candle in the middle! You could even let them dip them in a little Vegan Tzatziki Sauce.
Dreidel Hanukkah Snacks
These are so fun to make! I made dreidels of different sizes with slices of apple or pear, Larabar, 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 and get the kids involved with these Hanukkah snacks.
Banana Menorah with Pretzel Stick Candles
This is another menorah snack! It's a bit sweeter than the Veggie Menorahs, and just as fun for kids to help assemble. This one has a banana menorah, pretzel candlesticks, and mini vegan chocolate chips. I like using a dollop of almond butter as "glue" to hold the flames in place. Just like the Veggie Menorahs, make sure that one slice of banana is longer for the middle shamash candle!
