Cocoastomp Gift Guide: Hanukkah Books and Bites

You might remember some of these from last year's holiday gift guides, but I've added in some new favorites PLUS SNACKS. Do you need Hanukkah books or treats? All but THE WINTER BOOK are Hanukkah-centric. If I missed anything wonderful, correct me, please. You'll notice all the book links go to Indiebound—shop local!

Hanukkah Lights by David Martin, illustrated by Melissa Sweet
The Winter Book by Rotraut Susanne Berner
Theo Chocolates is selling a holiday box of eight, chocolate-covered confections, one for each night, in these droolable flavors:  Apple Cider Caramel, Burnt Sugar, Cardamom Caramel, Chinese Five Spice, Fig Fennel, Hazelnut Gianduja, Mint, Peppermint Caramel.

The Latke Who Couldn't Stop Screaming by Lemony Snicket, illustrated by Lisa Brown
Celebrate Hanukkah by Deborah Heiligman
Light the Menorah illustrated by Jannie Ho 

On Etsy, there are some Hanukkah treats, Guilt Candy or The Nosh from the craquerockshop (same item, different bags)

Hershel and the Hanukkah Goblins by Eric Kimmel, illustrated by Trina Schart Hyman
I Have a Little Dreidel by Maxie Baum, illustrated by Julie Paschkis
Chanukah Lights Everywhere by Michael Rosen, illustrated by Melissa Iwai

Plus there're the terrifically traditional Hanukkah fondant cupcake toppers from KidsCakes on Etsy:

There's nothing that smacks of menorah about Fran's Chocolates Hanukkah selections, but they are so yummy, you won't really care.

And finally, I don't know if latkes should only be served with applesauce or not, but I'd bet anything from The Girl and the Fig could be a worthy alternative.
