Chocolates & Sweet Treats For Hanukkah 2010


Whether you spell it Hanukkah or Chanukah, here are some of our favorite kosher food gifts. See our kosher gift recommendations from previous years as well. And we have even more ideas: Check out our 2010 Holiday Gift Lists to find something for everyone on your list.

Prices and product availability are verified at publication but are subject to change. Shipping is additional. These items are offered by a third party and THE NIBBLE has no relationship with them.


Dale & Thomas:
Chocolate Overload Popcorn


Dale & Thomas popcorn is welcomed by the sophisticated palate. It’s not oversweetened and is elegant enough that it can become a light dessert or a garnish for ice cream. With 17 flavors to choose from, Dale & Thomas makes it easy with a selection of 6-pack samplers. The “Chocolate Overload” gift box comes with Dark Fudge With Praline Almonds, Chocolate Chunk N’Caramel, Peanut Butter & White Chocolate, Twice-As-Nice Chocolate, Double Chocolate and Black & White Biscotti. There are savory options too, such as Blazing Buffalo and Southwest Cheddar Chipotle and White Cheddar Black Peppercorn. We never met a flavor we didn’t like.

Assorted Chocolates & Chocolate Truffles

Our favorite toffee maker (see below) also offers a selection of lovely chocolates. The assorted collection includes luscious dark and milk chocolate-covered creams, fresh roasted nut clusters and delectable chews. Dark and milk chocolate truffles are filled with chocolate ganache balanced with fruit purées and liqueurs. A perfect choice for the chocoholic in your life!

Dark & Milk Chocolate Almond Toffee

A Nibble Top Pick Of The Week, Enstrom’s delicious American-style almond toffee hits the jackpot. It’s very buttery but not too rich, sweet but not too sweet, crunchy but pliant (no dental work is in jeopardy) and is our absolute favorite toffee. The Toffee Popcorn is a luxury as well. And, BOTH TOFFEE AND POPCORN ARE AVAILABLE SUGAR-FREE and are equally delicious. While peppermint bark isn’t a traditional Hanukkah gift, Enstrom’s is the best.

Gimmee Jimmy’s:
Cookies & More


Gimmee Jimmy’s makes baklava, biscotti, cakes, cookies, cupcakes, muffins and other popular desserts and snacks. Our favorite is the Cranberry Pecan Cookie. The sweet-tart flavor of the chewy cranberries combined with the crunchy pecans is a standout and nicely seasonal as well. Baked goods arrive in a festive blue box, perfect for the Chanukah season.

Harry And David:
Personalized Dreidel Cookies

These 4-inch frosted sugar cookies are soft as shortbread: a far cry from the hard, dry versions we’ve had that look similar. You can order them plain or personalized with the name of your giftee. At $29.95 for six of these toothsome treats, you can afford to give them to all your friends.

Hanukkah Gelt

As a child we preferred chocolate coins to real gelt! See’s keeps the tradition going with a festive box that holds two yellow net bags of coins.

Gourmet Taffy

Sweet’s is our favorite taffy. Beautifully boxed for gift-giving, it is also naturally flavored—with a choice of 13 different flavors and combinations. This is the best price-value gift we’ve come across—no one would believe the gorgeous box isn’t $10 instead of $4.25, the actual price.

Sugar-Free Also Available

Woodhouse Chocolate:
Chocolate Dreidel

This chocolate dreidel is the only item on our list that is NOT KOSHER—but it’s just too cute to leave out! Made by one of our favorite chocolatiers (read the review), the 4-1/2-inch tall hollow dreidel can be had in white, milk or dark chocolate. You may not be able to play with this dreidel, but it would make a great “grand prize” for the winner of the game.

Brownie Cheesecake

Two of our favorite things—rich creamy New York cheesecake atop a chocolate brownie layer with a chocolate ganache top. Who wouldn’t want one of these? Stock up and keep them in your freezer. A perfect hostess gift.
