Arguably our favorite part of Passover, this matzoh crack is a perfectly sweet ending to the hours-long seder you just had to sit through.

Most people remember that with the arrival of Passover comes the ban on all things delicious (at least in the opinion of carb-lovers like ourselves). Cakes, cookies, bread, and pasta are all off the table (pun intended), meaning that this annual, 8-day period can seem like a dark time.

With this super easy, delicious, and Passover-friendly dessert, you’ll embrace the power of matzoh and forget how sad you are with the lack of bagels and lox. After all, its salty crunch, gooey caramel, and rich chocolate make for an irresistible and addicting dessert.

Important notes:

1) If you’re making this for a seder where meat will be served, make sure you replace the butter with margarine so that you’re not mixing dairy and meat.

2) If you’re making this to bring to somebody else’s house, make sure you check that all of the ingredients have the kosher label and that your friends are okay with it being cooked in a non-kosher kitchen.
