"We eat much fried food on Chanukah and forget the illumination that it provides. Here are some sweet and savory eatable lights."

Servings: 8

Prep: 5 minutes

Total: 5 minutes


for the dough: make your own or use frozen pizza, pita, tortillas or crepes

for the candle: hearts of palm, celery, bananas

for the flames: pimento, dried red pepper, slivered almond, sliced strawberries

for the filling: lox spread, strawberry cream cheese


1. Cut your dough of choice into 4-inch squares. Spray with oil and lightly fry in a pan over medium heat for 30 seconds on each side. Make sure the dough does not get too crispy—it will make it harder to roll into candles.

2. Spread filling of choice in the center of dough square and roll up into a cylinder that looks like a candle.

3. Add an edible flame, and you're done! Chef's Tip: My favorite combinations include: Lox spread-stuffed candle with a pimento flame Celery and lox spread candle with a pimento flame Strawberry cream cheese-stuffed Candle with a strawberry flame Banana candle with an almond flame
