Recipe Honey Passover Matzo Chocolate Bark Crunch + More Sweet Main, Side & Dessert Recipes


10 Crafts to Make With All those Empty Matzah Boxes

Honey is such a versatile ingredient and doesn't need refrigeration as a pure product of bees. It's also kosher for Pesach, AKA the holiday of Passover when Jews around the world celebrate the mass exodus out of Egypt as free people. So here are some ideas to use this delicious natural sweetener in something other than Charoset. The choices are endless. I'm going to make this easy Honey Almond Matzo Crunch Bark to serve for dessert to my family and friends on Seder Night, but this will be delicious throughout the holiday and during the rest of the year as well. Definitely try it, especially if you love chocolate as much as I do!

Honey Almond Matzo Crunch Bark

Yield: one 8x8 pan (about 16 pieces) 
Active Time: 20 minutes Total Time: 2 hours 

  • 1/2 cup Golden Blossom(R) Kosher for Passover honey 
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cut into cubes 
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract 
  • 2 matzos, about 1 cup coarsely crumbled 
  • 1/3 cup sliced almonds, lightly toasted 
  • 1 cup chocolate chips large flake sea salt for sprinkling 

  • Line an 8-by-8-inch baking pan with parchment paper or aluminum foil. 
  • If using foil, generously butter the foil (parchment paper is naturally nonstick). Set aside. 
  • Combine honey and butter in a 2 or 3 quart heavy-bottomed saucepan. 
  • Stir over medium heat until butter is melted and mixture begins to boil. 
  • Insert a candy thermometer into the bubbling mixture and continue to cook, swirling the pan occasionally to prevent scorching, until it is deep amber in color and measures 275-285ºF, about 8 minutes. 
  • Remove from heat and add vanilla extract (be careful as it will spatter). 
  • Stir in crumbled matzo pieces and slivered almonds until evenly coated. 
  • Pour into prepared baking pan and spread into an even layer. 
  • Sprinkle chocolate chips evenly over top of hot candy. Let sit for 5 minutes, then spread into an even layer using an offset spatula. Then, sprinkle with sea salt. 
  • Let cool for 1 to 2 hours or until set, then cut or break into bite size pieces to serve.
  • Store in an airtight container.
