How to Make

  • 1. To create base of Menorah, cut 9 x 1-inch foam disk in half. Glue blue ribbon along the curved outsized edges of each half disk. Cover the flat side of each half disk by folding one silver doily over each half, lining up the curved edges; secure with glue.

  • 2. Cover 4x2-inch disk with foil; glue blue ribbon around outside edge.

  • 3. To assemble Menorah, place one half disk flat on surface, curved side facing forward. Put 4 x 2-inch disk, flat side down, in center of half disk. Secure with glue. Place other half disk, curved side down, in center of 4 x 2-inch disk. Secure with 3 skewers and glue, piercing through all three pieces. (See illustration.) Decorate by gluing chocolates to base.

  • 5. To make candles, cut blue construction paper into 8 pieces (4 x 4-inch each) and 1 piece 5 x 4-inch for the center candle. Roll each piece into a 3/4-inch diameter cylinder; secure with glue. Cut 5 skewers in half; glue each skewer to inside of candle; insert the excess length of each skewer into each candy cup.

  • 6. Each flame is created with two gold foil-wrapped chocolates glued to each other at the flat base. Using 18 chocolates, make 9 flames. Each night of celebration, drop in one chocolate flame to light a candle. HAPPY HANUKKAH!
