Passover Dessert – Kosher Chocolate Covered Matzo Bark

Make this Passover dessert at your next gathering. You and everyone else at the table will love my Kosher chocolate-covered Matzo bark.

Passover is right around the corner and it is time to think about what to will be serving or what you should bring if someone else is hosting. I put together a Passover Menu. The recipes included in the menu and the one that I made here are included in the book Joy of Kosher by Geller. It is the best-selling author behind the “Quick & Kosher” and Joy of Kosher” cookbooks, called the Kosher Rachael Ray by the Miami Herald.

How To Make An Easy Passover Dessert

Thankfully preparing a Passover meal doesn’t have to be time-consuming. There are lots of shortcuts and things you can do to save time, especially on the dessert.

Ordered Prepared Meals for Passover 

Grocery stores with kosher sections have several stores in South Florida with an extensive Kosher section. In fact over the holiday, Winn Dixie is offering fully-prepared kosher meals are available at their three South Florida kosher stores located in Aventura, Tamarac and Boca Raton, as well as 11 additional South Florida stores. 

Passover is all about remembering the past and keeping traditions alive. If you don’t have time to make everything homemade, give yourself a break and order a prepared Passover meal.

Passover Menu

This is my Passover menu, from start to finish. I use this as my go-to every single year.

Appetizer: Salmon Cakes with Tropical Fruit Salad

These are so bright and colorful! And they taste amazing too.

Main Course: Lemon Kicked Lamb Shanks (Meat)

I love eating lamb on Passover. The symbolism captures the stories in a dish.

Side: Vegetable Stuffed Eggplant Rollatini (Parve)

The flavors of the earth all come together in this eggplant dish. I love how the red sauce creates a stunning contrast with the green eggplant.

Dessert: Macaroons Cake Pops (Parve)

And finally, you have to try these macaroons. They are so crispy and light. The chocolate on the bottom is the perfect finish.

Those are all the options I chose from the pre-made food. However, I just wanted to try and make my own Passover dessert too. So I came up with something that is super simple, Kosher, and tastes great. I made Kosher Chocolate covered matzo bark.

This recipe serves 8 people.

Passover Dessert Ingredients

This is what you need to make your own chocolate covered Matzo bark.
 
4 sheets of matzo, any variety

est)

How to Make the Best Passover Dessert

Follow these steps to make chocolate covered Matzo bark.
 
1. Melt both types of chocolate in separate bowls over a double boiler or in the microwave heat it for 30 seconds, then stir and heat for another 30 seconds, if not melted, put it back for 10 seconds at a time. (I used a stainless steel mixing bowl over a pot so that the bowl is high above the water and no space between the bowl and the pot.)
 
2. Spoon the chocolate over the matzo spreading with the back of the spoon until the full sheet is coated. Drizzle with the other colored chocolate.

3. Sprinkle with fruit and nuts and optional toppings. (I used chopped almonds, apricots, and coconut.)
 
 
4. Refrigerate until set, about 15 minutes. Break into pieces and serve or store in a refrigerator for up to one week.
 
That’s it!
 
You can always make this bark your own with a different nut too. These are so easy to make, that you can also let your children help them make the Passover dessert. I love cooking with my kids. It creates so many memories and helps them become more comfortable in the kitchen.
