Passover is almost here, and one of my favorite holiday treats is Matzo with chocolate. It’s crunchy, chocolatey and addictive, and this is such a great idea for a sweet gift to give to your Seder hosts or if you’re hosting this year – to your guests.
This matzo chocolate bark is so easy to make and only takes a few minutes of preparation. It’s made of crunchy matzo topped with melted white and dark chocolate and lots of nuts. You can use any kind of chocolate you like and garnish with any topping you prefer and get different matzo chocolate bark every time. It’s a great recipe to make with kids too!
