In Which: Melted Chocolate Proves Hard to Control

A while ago -- it feels like years, but it might only have been one -- my mother gave me this recipe for edible dreidels. I finally got around to making them this year, and in doing so I discovered that a career as a chocolatier is probably not in my future. Melted chocolate is globby! And there is a fine line between melting it and burning it, which I managed only by dumb luck to stay on the correct side of. But, although my dreidels do not look quite as delicate and, uh, dreidel-like, as the ones in the picture I was aiming for, they are still pretty sweet. Literally. Hahaha.
