||If, by any chance, you have any leftover gelt (or find some under the couch after the holiday), here are some fun and creative ways to use the gelt:
- S’mores – it may be past campfire weather, but it’s amazing to make s’mores in a toaster oven; the chocolate melts perfectly!
- Hot chocolate – for a special treat, cook milk over a medium-low heat and stir in broken pieces of gelt. Stir until melted, and enjoy!
- Chocolate chip pancakes – especially good with mashed banana
- Chocolate chip cookies – make your favorite version
- Mole – Jews living in Latin America often eat fried plantains in mole sauce during Chanukah. What about a mole sauce for latkes?
- Trail Mix – add to your favorite selection of dried fruits and nuts
- Cheese, Fruit and Chocolate platter – the irresistible combination of salty and sweet is perfection.
- Fondue – melt pieces and dip in your favorite fruits (dates, figs, dried apricots) for Tu B’shvat
