What You Need

1 frozen pound cake, cut into 6 thick slices White Chocolate candy melts White Chocolate candy kisses Blue paste food coloring Yellow sugar sprinkles (if desired) Blue & White striped straws, cut into 2 in. pieces

What You Do

For ease of cutting, make sure the pound cake is frozen. Using a serrated knife, trim the “crust” (outside brown layer) from the pound cake slices. Cut each slice of cake into 4 rectangles – slice vertically in half and then horizontally in half. Holding a rectangle – long sides pointing up and down – stick one piece of a straw into the top of the cake, creating a handle. Melt candy melts in the microwave according to directions. Reserve 1/2 cup of chocolate. Holding onto the straw handle, dip each piece of cake into the white chocolate, turning to cover. Lie on plate and immediately stick a candy kiss onto the open end of the cake. Sprinkle Dreidels with yellow sugar, if desired. Once all of the cake pieces have been covered with chocolate and sugar, chill in refrigerator for 15 minutes. Tint the reserved 1/2 cup of chocolate light blue. Fill a small plastic Baggie with the blue chocolate, creating a decorating bag. Barely snip one corner of the Baggie. Use this to draw the outlined boxes and letters on the Dreidels. (Refer to picture for help) Store in a sealed container in the refrigerator. Bring to room temperature 30 minutes before serving. Can be frozen after decorated.
