Happy Passover everyone! My entire family was able to eat dinner together last night through Zoom video chat, and I can't help but be so incredibly grateful for all I have, even in times of hardship. For Passover Day 2 I am sharing with you guys one of my favorite desserts to make during this time, which is my chocolate matzo! 

Here's what you need:

  • 4 to 6 unsalted matzos (preferably regular, but egg is fine as well)
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter or Passover margarine 
  • 1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 3/4 cup coarsely semisweet chocolate or chocolate chips
  • Sea salt to taste

Here's how to make it:

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Stack 2 jellyroll pans together and line them with foil, then with a sheet of parchment paper. 
  2. Line jellyroll pan with matzos as evenly as possible, cutting them in pieces to fill any gaps. 
  3. Heat butter and brown sugar in heavy-bottomed saucepan and bring to a medium boil for 2-4 minutes. Remove mixture from stove and pour over matzos. 
  4. Put jellyroll pan into oven and bake for about 15 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven and sprinkle the chocolate over the matzos. Let stand for 5 minutes, the smear the chocolate with a spatula to spread. Sprinkle sea salt to taste over chocolate. 
  5. Freeze for about an hour and break up the pieces however you'd like!
