I love to teach my boys about religions and celebrations that are not necessarily custom for our faith and ethnicity. I want them to respect and understand differences in others. And, I want them to be able to have intelligent conversations about as many topics as possible, so I educated them as much as I can.
I grew up Lutheran, believe Catholic, but practice Methodist when I attend church. However, I LOVED my world religion courses in college. And I took every opportunity I could to visit other places of worship.
I also loved teaching at a small local Jewish day school before my boys were born. So, each year, we celebrate Hanukkah a little bit. We have made some of these 10 Fabulous Hanukkah Crafts, and we’ve even had a Hanukkah Celebration or three.
Easy Hanukkah Cookies
As a Christian family, one of our favorite holiday traditions is baking cookies for our friends and family.
Some of our closest family friends are Jewish and while I am sure they wouldn’t be offended by stocking and Santa shaped cookies, we decided to make them so special Hanukkah cookies. But, they don’t have to be just for Hanukkah!

Begin by plugging in and spraying the waffle iron with a little bit of cooking spray.
Then, carefully put some cookie dough on the waffle iron. We used about 4-5 pre-made cookie dough balls for each cookie.
Next, close the lid of the waffle iron and cook the cookie for about 60-90 seconds after the indicator light goes on. Cookies take a little longer to make than waffles do.
While the cookie is baking, warm up come chocolate candy melts in the microwave.
Carefully remove the cookie from the waffle iron and add more dough to make another cookie.
While the next cookie is baking, fill int the snowflake with the melted candy melt, and then sprinkle with candy sprinkles.
After the candy melts have hardened, use a decorating brush to brush away the excess sprinkles.
Repeat the steps above for each cookie you make.
That’s it! Super easy to make, and so much fun! Package them up with these Hand Painted Hanukkah Tags for the perfect gift!
