Hanukkah Dreidel BrowniesA sheet pan of brownies is trimmed and frosted to resemble a large dreidel.

Recipe Ingredients:

1 cup butter or margarine, softened
2 cups granulated sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
4 large eggs
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups (12-ounce package) HERSHEY'S Premier White Chips - divided use
1 tablespoon vegetable shortening (do not use butter, margarine, spread or oil)
1 (4.25-ounce) tube royal blue decorating icing (optional)

Cooking Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C). Line 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking pan completely with foil, leaving extra on sides for handles.
  2. Place butter in large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at HIGH (100%) 2 to 2 1/2 minutes or until melted. Stir in sugar and vanilla. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well with spoon after each addition. Add cocoa; beat until well blended. Add flour, baking powder and salt; beat well. Pour batter into prepared pan.
  3. Bake 30 to 35 minutes or just until brownies begins to pull away from sides of pan. Cool completely in pan on wire rack. Invert brownie onto serving tray; peel off foil.

  5. Place 1 cup white chips and shortening in small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at HIGH 1 minute; stir until mixture is melted and smooth when stirred. Spread on dreidel, about 1-inch from top and 2 sides, forming 7-inch square. Decorate with remaining white chips and decorating icing, if desired.
