10 Festive Recipes to Make This Chanukah

10 Festive Recipes to Make This Chanukah


1. Traditional Potato Latkes

Is it Chanukah without ’em?

2. Butternut Squash Sweet Potato Latkes

Add some color and flavor with these delicious ones.

3. Vegetable Latkes

I can hardly claim these are healthy, because at the end of the day they are fried, but they do contain some healthier vegetables like zucchini, carrot and spinach, instead of just potato, potato, potato . . .

4. Beet Latkes Stuffed with Goat Cheese

These babies are certainly non-traditional, but they have proven themselves incredibly popular and delicious.

5. Corn Latkes

6. Dreidel-Shaped Ricotta Ravioli

For the adventurous . . .

7. Fried Mozzarella Sticks

These gooey, cheesy mozzarella sticks combine dairy and oil—two of Chanukah’s traditional foods.

8. Chanukah Party Surprise Cake

Don’t tell anyone what's inside until you cut it open!

9. Sufganiyot (Jelly Doughnuts)

Soft and fluffy sufganiyot are a traditional Chanukah treat. Try making them this year.

10. Learn How to Decorate Doughnuts Beautifully

Prefer frosted doughnuts to the traditional sufganiyot? Learn how to make them look aesthetically appealing.

Will you be my mommy? Miriam... Beet latkes stuffed with goat cheese. You're speaking my language. Look at that chocolate cake! Ohhhh I wanna take that cake and gently place it on top of my head like a hat and then gingerly pull it down over my whole face. Just leave it there, okay? Good! Thank you very much. Reply
