Passover Chocolate Caramel Matzah




Desserts can be challenging at Passover since leavening of any kind is not used. This is a quick and delightful alternative for the sweet-tooth during Passover week. Your guests will be raving! Enjoy this easy-to-make dessert with accompanying tutorial video by Bonnie Saul Wilks.


4-6 unsalted matzahs
1 bottle caramel topping with a squeeze top (the kind used to put over ice cream)
1/2 cup chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Line a baking sheet with foil.

Place a single layer of matzahs on the sheet to cover. You may need to break them to fit.

Squeeze the caramel evenly over the matzahs.

Bake for about 15 minutes.

Check half way through to make sure it is not browning too quickly. Rotate pan.

Remove from oven and add the chocolate chips.

Let the chocolate sit for 5 minutes and then spread evenly over the matzos.

You can add toasted nuts or sesame seeds or coconut flakes to the melted chocolate. You can also use a variety of chocolates, like white or bitter sweet. If the chocolate is not setting up at room temperature, place the matzah in the refrigerator for about 10 minutes. Break into pieces and serve on a platter.

This is a winner!
