Brownie Dreidels for Hanukkah!

Are you up for a rousing game of dreidel? How about of brownie dreidel? With just one sheet pan of brownies you can make dozens of these adorable 3D spinning tops to celebrate Hanukkah (or Hanukka, Chanukah, Chanuka or however you spell it). 

The idea is fairly simple - a brownie square with the ends trimmed off, a pretzel stick handle and some icing letters. For the most sophisticated look, you can dip all the dreidels completely in chocolate before pipping on the letters, or just coat one side, or leave the brownies au naturel.

You can use any brownie recipe you like, including a box mix, but I chose this particular recipe because it is fudgy and dense and sturdy enough to stand up to the dipping and pretzel handle. It is also delicious.
