I feel like I'm still processing that Thanksgiving is over, and it already feels like Hanukkah is right around the corner! Now, I know sufganiyot, or jelly donuts, are the traditional Hanukkah treat (I learned this from a Sesame Street Hanukkah video I used to watch on VHS as a kid), but my tiny apartment kitchen doesn't allow for frying. So what could I make that is Hanukkah themed, but also delicious?
I've been wanting to do a red wine brownie recipe for awhile now. And winter seems like a good time for red wine brownies - they just seems so comforting and cozy! Why not give this idea a go for Hanukkah using none other than good ol' Manischewitz?! So I did just that, but I didn't think the Maneschewitz flavor was powerful enough, so I enhanced it with a Manischewitz frosting.
These are a super fun and super unique Hanukkah recipe. And they are SUPER easy to boot! Just one bowl and a wooden spoon is all you need make this simple recipe. As you know, that's how I like my recipes! Super easy and all mixed in one bowl. No mixer needed! So eat your latkes and then pour yourself a glass of Manischewitz, and then pour that Manischewitz right into your brownie mix!
