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 or white ribbon
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.
