Chocolate-Covered Matzah Recipe

Passover recipe

Celebrate Passover with a sweet treat! Sure, you already eat matzah during this Jewish holiday. But, what else can you do with it? You can add a few eggs and fry it. Or, you can turn it into a dessert. If matzah and dessert don’t seem to go together, think again. Get the family together for this easy-to-make holiday recipe! Chocolate matzah is a fun way to dress up the (sometimes) blank food, without having to do any serious cooking.


  • Matzah (the more you use, the thinner the chocolate will be)
  • ¾ cup of chocolate chips or broken apart chocolate bars (use either milk, dark or white)
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • 1 ½ sticks butter


  1. Cover a cookie sheet with foil. Put the matzah on top (place each piece next to one another).
  2. Melt the butter and brown sugar together in a saucepan over low heat.
  3. Pour the butter-sugar mixture over the matzah.
  4. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
  5. Put the matzah in the oven for two minutes to warm it (and the butter) up.
  6. Scatter the chocolate over the butter-covered matzah. It should melt. If it doesn’t, pop the matzah (with the chocolate) back into the oven for one minute. Use a spatula to press and spread the chocolate over the matzah.
  7. Freeze the matzah until the chocolate hardens) ideally overnight).
  8. Take the matzah out of the freezer and eat.

If you use white chocolate you can add food coloring to make a rainbow dessert!
