5 Crave-Worthy Chanukah Desserts readers, meet one of our newest contributors, Jamie Geller! 

Whether you celebrate the Festival of Lights or not, we can all agree that there’s something unbeatable about sweet, fried desserts.

While these are traditionally served during Chanukah, you can add them to the menu at any celebration for a show-stopping twist on traditional desserts.

1. Jelly Doughnuts (Sufganiot)

Uber-easy jelly-filled doughnuts are ideal for Chanukah or anytime you get a craving. This version is fried in the traditional style, or you can try a baked option for a lighter take!

2. Nutella-Banana Egg Rolls

The name says it all. These dessert egg rolls combine warm banana and creamy Nutella with a crunchy egg roll wrapper. Warning: You probably can’t have just one!

3. Cinnamon Sugar Churros

Light, crispy, and covered in sugar. These churros bring this fair-favorite straight to your kitchen in a recipe that’s a blast to make. For a fall twist, try Ginger Churros with Caramel Apples.

4. Apple Zeppole with Jelly Dipping Sauce

Zeppole are Italian pastries that consist of deep-fried dough balls. For the best results, make these right before serving so they’re hot and have the perfect texture!

5. Chocolate Raspberry Wontons

These bite-sized desserts are ideal for parties. Perfectly packaged in wonton wrappers, their crackling bite and burst of fruit are delightful and decadent.
