Easy Hanukkah Holiday Treats

hanukkah recipe

Celebrate each of Hanukkah’s eight nights with a festive, and family-friendly, food. You don’t have to prep a full multi-course dinner for each night. Instead try these snacks, desserts and other holiday treats. And bonus, the kids can help you to make these super-simple recipes!

Cut-Out Cookies

Make a menorah — with cookies. Use cookie cutters to make rectangle and oval shapes. Whip up a batch of your favorite sugar cookies or use a mix. After baking the cookies, and letting them cool, frost them. The rectangles will be the menorah’s base and the candles, with the ovals as flames. Have the kids puzzle together a menorah, using the rectangles. Add the flame, with one for each night!

Layered Latkes

You made latkes for a holiday meal. But you have some leftover. Put them to use, creating a layered snack for the whole family to enjoy. Spread a thin layer of applesauce across a latke, later another latke on top. Add another apple sauce layer, thinly-sliced apples and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Another option is to make a savory version, using melted cheese or sour cream and lox.

Sufganiyot S’mores

Sufganiyot, or doughnuts filled with jelly, are a holiday tradition. Slice the doughnuts, placing one half on a graham cracker. Don’t worry if the jelly is oozing out, that’s half the fun! Stack a thin piece of white cholate, a marshmallow and another graham on top. Microwave the s’more for 10 seconds or until the marshmallow starts to puff.
