A few years ago I posted a craft idea on my blog. It describes using colorful twizzlers as edible perler beads to create colorful and edible works of art. After receiving a lot of positive feedback from my followers, I was invited to post a Chanukah version of the edible perler craft on www.kosher.com. For all of you looking for a fun activity to do with your family over Chanukah, this one appeals to kids (and adults) of all ages.
Last year, I had this idea stuck in my mind, I wanted to create a spinning Dreidel at my Chanukah Party. Though originally I was struggling to come up with an idea, I picked up a house shaped holiday gift box at a local Dollar Tree. After “topping” it off with a 2” party favor cube, I covered the entire “Dreidel” with mylar (shiny paper) and then lots of candy. Placing it on top of a display turntable and watching everyone’s faces, I knew this Dreidel spinner was a real winner!!
I began admiring Ariella Katschers talent when she started her first business, A Pretty Pretzel, in the Five Towns. Ariella has since moved back to Toronto, her hometown, and shortly after her return, she opened an online candy store “thecandycatchers.com ”, featuring stunning custom candy platters beautiful, creative gifts, and, of course, her famous artisanal pretzels! Thank you, Ariella, for giving us a step by step guide on how to make these adorable apple pretzels for Rosh Hashana!
