3 tasty treats for Hanukkah

Hanukkah foods like potato pancakes, apple sauce and chocolate gelt can be pretty straightforward, but these three treats are anything but boring.

1. Dreidels are a traditional part of Hanukkah that many kids love to play with. However, as fun as they are, they're not edible. Luckily, this is a clever way to change that. With only marshmallows, chocolate kisses and pretzels, you can make edible dreidels that the kids will (quite literally) eat up. Just melt the chocolate, dip the marshmallows in it and wedge a pretzel stick into the marshmallow for a festive treat!

2. Potato pancakes, or latkes, are a traditional and savory dish that many make during Hanukkah. This version is livened up by becoming both sweet and savory. The secret ingredient? Beer! Fry them up, top them with apple sauce, creme fresh and more.

3. In addition to latkes, here's a great idea for Hanukkah-inspired potato chips. Slice up potatoes in the shape of dreidels and stars and bake them as chips in lieu of potato pancakes. While less traditional, they're a fun and festive addition to your Hanukkah spread. Plus, they make for a great party appetizer!
