As parents of hyped-up kids around the world will agree, oil isn’t the only ingredient many Chanukah treats have in common.
In fact, between the sufganiyot, the chocolate coins, the Chanukah cookies, and who knows what else, the festival tends to be almost as sugar-laden as Purim.
Which means that there’s no better time to visit a chocolate factory than on Chanukah.
And, so, during our recent trip to Katzrin – the scenic town known as the “capital of the Golan Heights” - we headed over to the boutique chocolate factory in Kibbutz Ein Zivan.
Visitors get to watch the chocolatiers at work, taste some of the handmade confections, and even try their own hands at chocolate-making.
Here are some of the chocolate sculptures on display:
חנוכה שמח וחודש טוב!
