Parshas Vayishlach "Siddur" Treats

Creating parsha themed treats with your kids doesn't always have to be a complicated process. This week we have a simple and adorable parsha treat for your kids to create and enjoy. Let's create these irresistible mini "siddur" treats together, just follow along step by step. What's the parsha connection here? Yakov prepares to meet Eisav with a three-fold strategy:

1. He sends gifts ahead of his arrival to appease Eisav

2. Yakov turns to the One Above with prayer (that's where our treats connect :) )

3. Yakov plans for a potential war.



Alright now, let's get into the dessert instructions.


Here's What You'll Need:

  • Individually wrapped wafers (or other large wafers) not chocolate covered.

  • Jam ( I used apricot jam, so that if a little oozes out, it is a mild color)

  • Fruit Leather (It needs to be the thick, not the fruit leather rolls)

  • Knife


Let's Get Started:


First, you'll need to cut the wafer to be a little smaller than half of the fruit leather. I got two squares and a scrap piece in the middle for each wafer.



Next, spread a thin layer of apricot jam on half of the fruit leather, and place the wafer down on the jam. Fold the other half over to see if the wafer is cut to the right size, or if it needs to be trimmed.


Once you are happy with the size, spread some more jam over the wafer and fold the rest of the fruit leather over to create a book.


Using a knife, carefully score the two corners of the book, to allow the "book cover" to stay on the wafer better. Be careful not to cut into the fruit leather all the way.


If the leather is falling off the wafer, pile up all of the books and place a medium weight, small object on it, to hold it in place for an hour or two while the jam hardens a bit.


Line up the prayer books and enjoy!!
