This year Al and I hosted a Hanukkah party at our house. We made latkes, made all our friends drink Manischewitz (someone described it as "watered-down grape jelly with booze in it"), and I bought a buttload of chocolate Hanukkah coins so we could all gamble. We had licensed coins this year- Spongebob, My Little Pony, Strawberry Shortcake and Batman.
Thing is, once you get drunk the rules of dreidel go out the window, and you start eating your winnings.
In the aftermath of the celebration I had all these leftover coins, so I decided that I should post what to do with them, if by chance you ever become Jewish and find yourself with an abundance of coinies. OR if you are already Jewish and save your coinies for next year and wonder why they taste like ass. Now, there is really no need for a photo tutorial because it is pretty self-explanatory, but I got a new digital camera and I love playing with it. So don't judge me!!


<b>First and foremost, remember before any edible Hanukkah coin recycling activities, that you REMOVE THE FOIL. FOIL IS NOT DELICIOUS.</b> This may seem like common sense, until you start drinking Manischewitz.


Now that the wrapping is off, you can begin the deliciousness. Now go get some peanut butter and stick it on one of the coins.


Then stick the other coin on top!


Now bask in the delicious! Don't forget to lift the pinkie.

Other uses for Hanukkah coins:
1. Use instead of pepperoni on pizza.
2. Throw at old people.
3. Throw at Nazis (and run!).
4. Toss in salad as a chocolatey alternative to croutons.

It was a fun ride up.

Dear Sarah,
Thank you for being a fellow Jewess who loves using the word "delicious." I also thought of another idea on recycling Hanukkah coins- put them in with your regular change and then go to your bank and stick it in the coin counter. Wouldn't it be funny if the next time you got a roll of quarters from the bank their was a gelt in there? There's always at least ONE Canadian coin in there anyway, and those aren't even delicious.

wow, i learned something new today... in new zealand, chocolate coins are a traditional christmas stocking stuffer, i had never heard of any other instance of their consumption. could you tell me how this originated as an aspect of hanukka? (also, what does spongebob have to do with hanukka?)

Yum! I love Hanukkah coins! Especially the dark chocolate ones. And sandwiching peanut butter between them sounds like heaven!

a friend of mine brought me back some chanukkah nuts from san francisco- they are kind of like almond m&ms, but are way better and are only blue and white.

i may be wrong, but i don't know if these are available in nz- i wish they were.

also, i am familiar with the game of dreidel, but have only ever played for peanuts. gold coins sounds like more fun.

Perhaps chocolate yuletide coins are also a Great Britain and Commonwealth thing.  My mummy dearest - not at all Jewish, but very much English and Irish Catholic - always gave us a bag of chocolate coins in our stockings for Christmas (even though the chocolate's never at all nice ... does anyone know if Cadbury's makes chocolate coins, by the way?).


...Come to think of it now... 1. my granny always had a plate in her kitchen with the word "Shalom" upon it, 2. I distinctly recall her often enough singing "My yiddishe mama", and 3. there's a peculiar family rumour about a Jew having 'chased m'ninny up the back entry'...

...but as far as the chocolate coins are concerned, I'm fairly certain that it's a British thing, too (I'm not entirely certain, though, having been raised in the States).
