DIRECTIONS

  • Take any frosted cupcake or muffin, decorate with colored icing, candy stars, stars of David , candy dreidels or snowflake sprinkles, coconut, etc.
  • Place eight of the cupcakes on a long platter, on a board covered in foil or around the edge of a round platter. In the center of the row or circle, place a pretty inverted drinking glass or small bowl. Set the "shamash" cupcake here.
  • Place a real candle in the center of each cupcake.
  • For an fire-free edible candle, place a chocolate covered wafer stick such as Twix, Pirouline, or even Twizzlers, cut to size, lengthwise in the center of each cupcake and make a "flame" with dab with white or yellow frosting on top.
  • The Cupcake Menorah makes a creative, easy Hanukkah centerpiece and the kids will really enjoy watching their dessert flicker away throughout the meal. They may even stay at the table a bit longer!
