Six Weeks Until Purim
Many of you don’t even have Purim on your radar yet, but here at PurimLand.com we start early to be able to bring you our great line up of arrangements and Shalach Manos so that you can send delicious Purim Baskets to family and friends in Israel. Although it is too early to get baking, we are planning out our 2018 selection of sweets and treats. This year, we thought we’d share some recipes of our past hits so that you can recreate them yourselves. From our kitchen to yours with love!
Start with your favorite brownie recipe and then using a 2.5 inch circle cookie cutter, cut out discs of brownie. Top with a disc of our yummy chocolate chip cookie dough (recipe follows below) and then spoon some chocolate genache over the top, being careful to drip a bit down the sides. Roast some marshmallows in a single layer in your oven and top each portion with a roasted marshmallow.
Chocolate chip cookie dough
(That’s right- it’s raw chocolate chip cookie dough! But this recipe is egg free so no need to worry about eating raw dough)
½ cup (1 stick) marg
1/3 cup sugar
2/3 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 tbsp soy milk
1 ¼ cups flour
½ tsp salt
A pinch of baking soda
1/3 cup chocolate chips
Cream marg with sugars until light and fluffy. Add milk and vanilla, mix. Beat in flour, salt and baking soda. Fold in chips by hand. Chill to make easier to work with. Shape into discs by rolling out dough about 3/4 of an inch thick and cutting with your round cookie cutter.
Next, prepare a chocolate genache by finely chopping a 3.5 ounce bar of chocolate. Heat 4 ounces parve whip topping or dairy cream over medium heat just until boiling. Remove from heat and add chocolate. Allow to sit for 5 minutes and then whisk until smooth.

Both kids and kids at heart love snowmen. So much fun and so easy to work with for a Purim theme! So scroll through and start building your own snowman Purim treats!
You can make snowman cupcakes:
Or make snowman smores:
Decorate some chocolate bars

Here is a free printable template that you can use for a wrapper:
Love these marshmallow snowman pops:
These pops are made from powdered sugar doughnut holes:
And of course the classic oreo pops:
Oriental trading has adorable snowman boxes that you can easily fill with simple snowman building goodies like marshmallows, button candy, carrots or corn candy for noses, pretzel twigs and whatever else you want to tie in.
But really almost anything can be made into fun snowman treats:
For a super classy looking Shalach Manos, why not go for the magnificent and colorful peacock look. I found you can buy peacock feathers online from sites like ebay for about $10 for 100 feathers. Your local craft shop may also carry them, so why not pop in and check what they’ve got.
Chose a container in either royal blue, emerald green, teal, a vibrant purple, gold or bronze and decorate with complementary colored ribbons and one or two peacock feathers. Orientaltrading.com offers the following craft idea for a cupcake box.
Isn’t that something! Easy, not expensive but what a wow factor. Here are some other gift wrapping pics for you to use for inspiration (although they are not inherently Purim related.)
If you are talented in the kitchen and want to go all out you can frost cupcakes and top with an edible feather made from fondant, royal icing, or colored chocolate.

This awesome cookie would be really time consuming, but you know it would be the talk of the town
“Do or do not there is no try”
“Come to the dark side, .…we have cookies”
To tell you the truth, I don’t want to go there with a Star Wars theme but being how popular this is in the US right now, you know it’s going to be a popular costume.So here are some ways to work Star Wats into your Mishloach Manos
First of all there are perfect Star Wars cookie cutters/ presses that you will want to get.
Those cuttter will cut the shape out and impress the image on your cookie dough and/or fondant so that you can make cookies like this
... or fondant toppers like this
And of course you can’t exclude Princess Leia… I’m thinking some sort of round container to hold the nosh and attach a round Challah roll to each side to represent her trademark “do”. Oh, and of course you can dip pretzel logs in blue and/or red chocolate for light sabers…
Everywhere I look, I am reminded that Superheros are super “in” right now. What a great topic for a Purim Meshloach Manos package. Anything and everything can be transformed to work within this theme! I’m gonna share some fantastic ideas with you for your inspiration and let you imagination run wild.
Some ideas - like these
...my personal favorites- tie on capes!
Now, the following probably won’t help much for your Shalach Manot, but I couldn’t talk about superhero cake pops and not show you this
You get the idea! Now let me share with you a great source for superhero paper goods and party favors: orientaltrading.com If you don’t yet know about that site, you really should check it out. This is a perfect source for themed parties, party favors and of course for our purposes all things Purim. (Keep in mind though, that although they also sell candy, most of it is not Kosher so stick to their non-edible items.)
