Marshmallow Dreidels

Kids love to make their own brightly colored sugar. Put the sugar in small plastic containers or glass jars with tight-fitting lids and let kids shake away to distribute the color among the sugar crystals.

      Divide the sugar between two containers with tight-fitting lids. Put a few drops of blue food coloring into one and yellow into the other. Cover with lids and shake the containers vigorously. If the color is not bright enough, add a few more drops and shake again. Use the back of a spoon to break up any clumps and shake again if necessary. Leave the lids off so the sugar can dry while you form the dreidels.

      Blend the butter, confectioners’ sugar, milk and vanilla with beaters or whip it with a fork to make frosting.

      Gently press a pretzel stick through a marshmallow and let it poke out a bit on the other side. Use a knife to frost the outside of the marshmallow with the frosting and then roll it in yellow or blue sugar, handling it gently so the pretzel doesn’t break.

      Use a metal skewer to make a small hole in the base of a chocolate kiss, then put a dot of frosting over the hole and press the kiss to the marshmallow, letting the small end of the pretzel stick to it. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
