Gelt Trip Chocolates
One bag will do. Or wait, not really.
Dean and Deluca Chocolate Babka
2 loafs for $28, Dean and Deluca
For some of us, it’s just not a Hanukkah without a babka.
UPDATE: Dean and Deluca is gone, but you can find Oneg Bakery’s Double Chocolate Babka at Goldbely, which ships everywhere.
When you need to make a very big impression. But hurry, only 50 boxes available each year!
Lot ‘A Latkes Gift Box
The ultimate taste of an NYC Hanukkah.
La Tourangelle Roasted Peanut Oil
$7.98/16.9 oz, Amazon
Hey, those latkes aren’t going to fry themselves.
(And of course, canola oil is fine if you’re avoiding peanuts.)
Artisanal Sufganiyot (i.e. Jelly Donuts) by Underwest
Traditional — yet not.
UPDATE: Underwest is gone, sniff, but you can DIY with a fabulous jelly donut recipe like this one from The Spruce Eats.
Festival of Bites mini cupcakes
$30/25 and up, Baked by Melissa
Warning: Will not last all 8 nights.
Progettidivini Prosecco Brut
According to Food & Wine, champagne and sparkling wines are the very best latke-wine pairing, and who am I to argue? Prosecco is a perfect choice hold its own with sweet applesauce, and not too spendy.
Zabar’s Black and White Cookie Box (Kosher)
Oh Zabar’s. You always come through.
