Chocolate Matzoh Recipe (Matzo)

I have been making chocolate matzoh for the last couple of years after seeing it for sale. The process is pretty simple. Just spread some chocolate shavings and melt in the oven for a few minutes. I also like to jazz it up with toasted nuts and even melted caramel. Matzoh is baked in a wood fired oven which gives it a pretzel like quality. When coated in chocolate and a little salt, it is like a chocolate covered pretzel. Now I am not strict kosher, and I cannot say this will be considered strict Kosher for Passover food. The matzoh is kosher, but I not sure about the chocolate, which is kosher, but I am not sure if its kosher for Passover kosher.

Ingredients:

4-6 sheets of matzoh (I prefer Yehuda Brand)
2-3 Bars 4oz Ghirardelli Bittersweet Chocolate 60%
1/4-1/2 Cup toasted almonds, walnuts, and/or hazelnuts
few pinches of kosher salt

Procedure:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line two sheet pans with tin foil.

Chop the chocolate. Toast almonds in oven or toaster oven for about 10-15 minutes. Make sure not to burn the nuts. Chopped the nuts, and set aside. Sprinkle the chocolate over the matzoh and bake in the oven for 2-3 minutes. Just until you the chocolate melts.

Spread the chocolate with a rubber spatula over the matzoh to create a smooth layer.

Smooth chocolate

Sprinkle on almonds and a small pinch of salt (optional) while the chocolate is still melted, so it sticks. Let sit in a cool place or even the refrigerator to cool. Break into smaller pieces and serve, or for fun pass around a full sheet and have guest break off their own piece.

Chocolate matzoh makes for a great holiday snack gift. Present in decorative wrap or a cookie tin.

  4. Because I used tin foil, I think it makes the pan kosher, because it has not touched meat, dairy, etc..
