If you're inclined to cook, here are some chocolate recipes to help all that matzah go down. And if you're not inclined to cook, or don't celebrate Passover, or WORSE don't even like chocolate, you can just skip this one.
Matzah candy:If you don't celebrate Passover, you could make the same type of thing using Saltine crackers. I like the candy part sort of soft, so my recipe cooks for less time than most:
3-4 boards of matzah
3/4 cups of butter
12 ounces of semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup brown sugar
-Melt butter with sugar on medium heat, stirring constantly.
-Bring to a low boil and cook 3-4 minutes.
-Grease cookie sheet with butter.
-Lay matzah on a cookie sheet and fill empty places with pieces of matzah (in other words the entire cookie sheet has one layer of matzah)
-Pour sugar mixture over the matzah
-Cover with chocolate chips
-Put into a 350 degree oven for a few minutes, just until the chocolate chips are soft and melty.
-Spread chocolate evenly over the matzah and sugar/butter mix with a knife or spatula
(this picture shows a double recipe)-Refrigerate
-Break into pieces
-Gain 70 pounds just by looking at it
(this is a single recipe)
Passover Brownies:Unlike the candy recipe, you probably wouldn't make this if you don't celebrate Passover. Still, as baked goods made of matzah goes, these are very yummy. I can't remember who gave me the recipe. Maybe my friend Annette.
