Chocolate Covered Matzo Crackers

If you haven’t had chocolate cover matzo crackers before, here’s a very easy recipe to try and enjoy. A holiday tradition that can be enjoyed year round. 

 A few weeks before Passover, all the great boxed desserts are out on the shelves in the markets and grocery stores. 

My favorite since I was a little girl was and still is “Chocolate Covered Matzo.”

My mom would buy a few boxes right away when the shelves in the market would fill up with boxes and boxes before Passover.

Then buy more right before the first day of Passover. 

This way we had some for the whole week of Passover and when they stopped selling this wonderful treat so we could still enjoy a few pieces a few weeks after the holiday was over.

When Passover ended, chocolate covered matzo and chocolate covered matzo crackers would be gone until the following year.

I guess that’s why it was such a special treat because we only got to have it for only a few weeks a year. 

There’s nothing like crunchy matzo with dark chocolate. It’ so delicious.

Since I became a food blogger, I started making this for family and friends during the holidays.

The best part is, they sell matzo all during the year.

Now I can make this anytime. This is a very easy recipe. Give it a try. 

Munch away on this decadent, crunchy, sweet and salty treat anytime of year.

Happy Passover to those who celebrate.
