Cheerful Chocolate-Filled Funfetti Hamantaschen

Cheerful Chocolate-Filled Funfetti Hamantaschen


I have no idea when “funfetti” became a flavor, but apparently at some point it did. And despite my cynicism at the legitimacy of sprinkles as a flavor, I’ve decided to give it a shot and make these cheerful, festive hamantaschen for Purim.

I’ve filled them with dark chocolate, but you can use white chocolate, or any of the more traditional fillings (jam, poppyseed, etc.)

Not sure how to do the actual folding? Check it out here.


  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup oil
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1½ tsp. baking powder
  • ⅓ cup sprinkles
  • 1 bar of chocolate (or 1 cup chocolate chips)


  1. Mix the eggs, sugar, oil and vanilla.
  2. Add 1 cup of flour and the baking powder. Mix.
  3. Add the second cup of flour until the dough forms a soft but not sticky ball. You may need 2–3 more tablespoons of flour if your dough is sticky.
  4. Gently knead in the sprinkles.
  5. Roll out the dough and cut our circles.
  6. Put a piece of chocolate, or 3–4 chocolate chips, in the center of each circle.
  7. Gently fold the sides and pinch shut tightly.
  8. Bake for 10–12 minutes at 350° F.

Yields: Approximately 20 hamantaschen

In the process of baking them and 2 things I learnt:
they rise a lot so roll em real thin
and do not use the nonpareils (round sprinkles) as they shed their color into the dough and you end up with colored dough and white roundies inside.
enjoy em! Reply

Thanks, this was fun! I didn't even get to taste any, they were all gone before I had a chance! That's a good sign, right? Reply
