Cheese Dreidels

Celebrate Hanukkah with a festive and Nutrisystem-approved snack that is so simple to make, you can whip these Cheese Dreidels up for eight days straight! This simple dreidel snack is perfect to make with the kids to celebrate Hanukkah with a little creativity in the kitchen.

When we say simple, we mean simple. All you need to create these tasty treats are 12 cheese cubes and 12 pretzel sticks—two simple ingredients that you likely already have in the kitchen. The fun part about this recipe is trimming your cheese cubes into the “dreidel” shape. You will trim the cube ends on an angle so your cheese cubes form the shape of the dreidel and simply insert a pretzel stick into each. Two dreidels count as one Powerfuel on your Nutrisystem meal plan. These are also perfect to bring to a get-together. You can easily double or triple the recipe to share with co-workers or friends. Making them with the kids? Store the remaining dreidels in the fridge and snack on them throughout the week! The possibilities are endless when you can whip up a healthy (and fun!)  snack in mere minutes.
