3 Creative and Easy Mishloach Manot Ideas That Wow!

3 Creative and Easy Mishloach Manot Ideas That Wow!

While preparing this article, one of the goals I had in mind from the get-go was that the Mishloach Manot packages should be “doable” for everyone, with a variety of fun, cutesy and elegant ideas.


Additionally, I strived to present ideas that not only can be copied but also serve as a springboard for your own creativity. To this end, the ideas featured here can be done at various levels. So copy, nibble at, or reinvent these packages, but most of all, enjoy getting those creative juices flowing!   





Brighten your recipient’s day with this fun, colorful, and interactive Mishloach Manot.


You will need:

  • Sugar cookie dough (It’s important to choose a recipe that will hold its shape when baking.)
  • Colorful fondant (pre-made or white fondant mixed with food gel)
  • Crayons
  • Chocolate Bar wrapped in Purim coloring book wrapper. Download free printable here!

Directions for the “crayon” cookie:


Determine a size for your cookie and draw or print out an initial on paper.


Roll out cookie dough on a piece of parchment paper.


Cut out the paper initial and place on the rolled out cookie dough.


Using a sharp knife, carefully trace the initial and remove the dough around the initial, leaving the initial on the parchment paper.


Place parchment paper on tray and bake. Continue with the rest of your cookie dough, or until desired amount of cookies are made.  Allow cookies to cool completely.


Gently combine fondant colors and roll out. Do not over mix, as you don’t want the actual colors to mix into each other.


Using your paper initial and a sharp knife, retrace the initial on the fondant.


Use a drop of water or light corn syrup to stick the fondant to the cookie. Allow fondant to dry.





Fill the box with paper filler and arrange the cookie, crayons, chocolate bar and juice box how you like.





For those of you who prefer to send real food, this package is for you. 


The rustic container serves as easy packaging, making it easy to assemble on Purim day. The easy assembly is perfect here as the items are perishable and need to be refrigerated.  


You will need:

  • Long and narrow wooden crate (The one I used was 4″x12″x2″.)
  • Filler
  • Jars filled with herring and dill dip (I purchased the jars at Amazing Savings.)
  • Fabric cut into circles
  • Twine
  • Plastic box filled with kichel (The box I used was 5″x 2.75″ x 1.25″, purchased at Center of Town, Lakewood NJ.)
  • Labels

Fill the wooden crate with filler.


Place a piece of fabric over each jar’s lid and wrap with twine to secure. Wrap the container of kichel with twine to match.


That’s it! Easy, fast, and tasteful.





Sticking with a specific color palette will give your Mishloach Manot a sharp and uniform look. 


Color coordinate special treats by drizzling them with matching icing and sprinkles. 


For this tray, I chose galaxy colors. Use your imagination and creativity to create your own signature style.


You will need:




Divide icing into bowls (as many as the number of colors you would like to use). Mix food coloring into the icing. Place each color icing into a Ziploc bag and cut a small hole in the corner.


For the bark:

Break white chocolate bar into pieces and place on parchment paper.

Drizzle with icing and top with sprinkles.

Allow to dry.


For the spoons:

Place a small amount of chocolate into each spoon and decorate with sprinkles.(You may want to prop up the back of the spoon till the chocolate dries.)

Allow to dry.


For the hamantaschen:

Drizzle hamantaschen with chocolate and top with sprinkles.




Fill sections with grass and tissue paper. Then, fill each of the sections with your prepared treats.
