Chocolate Hanukkah Balls

Chocolate Hanukkah balls can make a beautiful table decoration, but it won't be long before they disappear -- especially if your family likes chocolate.

What You'll Need:

Clear glass jar


Blue sand

White sand

Blue or white ribbon

Seedless grapes

Wooden skewers

Semisweet chocolate chips



Saucer of blue and white candy sprinkles

Prepare the base of the decoration by washing and drying a large, clear glass jar. Then pour alternating layers of blue sand and white sand into the jar until it is full. Tie a blue or white ribbon around the neck of the jar.

Wash and dry a bunch of seedless grapes. Push each grape onto a wooden skewer.

Ask an adult to help you melt the chocolate chips in a saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly so the chocolate doesn't burn. When the chocolate is melted, dip each grape into it with a twirling motion so the entire grape is covered with chocolate.

Before the chocolate cools, twirl each grape in a saucer of blue and white sprinkles.

Poke the wooden skewers into the jar of sand you prepared earlier. Make a whole bunch and arrange them like flowers. Place the jar on the table for a delicious centerpiece.

It truly is the thought that counts in gift-giving. Keep reading to find out how you can let your friends and family know what you'd really love to give them.
