3. Break a thin pretzel rod in half and dip the broken end into the white frosting. Stick the frosting-dipped end into the flat side of the marshmallow to create the handle for the dreidel.

4. Holding the pretzel stick, roll the marshmallow in the sprinkles again to fully cover

5. Apply a small dab of white frosting to the Hershey Kiss and affix to the other flat side of the marshmallow to create the ‘spinner’.

    So uh, you know marshmallows aren't kosher, right?

      While the marshmallows I used for this tutorial are not kosher, I did this activity in the past at a nursery school and purchased kosher marshmallows from the kosher market.

    You can find kosher ones at a koshe market:)
    This is such a cute idea!
