5 Unexpected Hamantaschen Flavors

Gingerbread Hamantaschen with Spiced Apple Filling

Raspberry, poppy seed and chocolate all make for great fillings for those addicting little hamantaschen we get to enjoy each Purim, only thing is those are the only flavors we seem to receive.  I've seen some pretty exciting flavors of hamantaschen popping up on instagram pages of kosher bloggers and thought I would join in on the out-of-the-box hamantaschen party.  Below are 5 fun and unexpected hamantaschen flavors.

chocolate mint hamantashen

Chocolate Mint Hamantaschen: Keep it kid friendly with the perfect flavor duo of chocolate and mint. Make it a shalach manos with a bag of pretzels or chips for a balance of sweet and salty.

Cranberry and White Chocolate Hamentashen Recipe

Cranberry and White Chocolate Hamantaschen: These hamantaschen are even better than that time someone replaced the M&MS in your trail mix with crasins and white chocolate, these hamantaschen will become your new go-to treat for Purim.

Pareve Cinnamon Dulce De Leche Hamantashen

Pareve Cinnamon Dulce de Leche Hamantaschen: Eat these straight out of the oven with a scope of pareve vanilla ice cream, and you might find that there are none left to give for shalach manos!

Gingerbread Hamantaschen with Spiced Apple Filling

Gingerbread Hamantaschen with Spiced Apple Filling:  The weather will slowly be warming (please!) by Purim, but a winter-spiced treat flavored with gingerbread and spiced apples will still be a welcome and warming treat.


Cappucino Hamantaschen:  How about a little treat for the adults (ahem, mothers) who were up late making, or running to buy, piles of hamantaschen?  A little coffee and sugar rush will help lift the spirits to enjoy those late-night Purim parties.
