5 Best Passover Desserts
Beyond the Boring Brownie

It's almost Passover: Time to celebrate the Jews' redemption from bondage in Egypt. Celebrate your redemption from the bondage of boring Pesach desserts with these five after-dinner winners.

Chocolate Covered Matzah

It doesn't get more Pesach-like than matzah for dessert. Of course, with glazed brown sugar and chocolate chips, this version is a bit more exciting than the afikomen.


6 T Passover margarine or butter
1/2 c brown sugar
4 sheets unsalted matzah
1 c semisweet chocolate ships


Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line 2 cookie sheets with foil.

Melt the butter or margarine in small saucepan. Add sugar and blend together.

Place two matzahs on each cookie sheet. With a rubber spatula, spread about 2 tablespoons of the butter mixture on top of each matzah.

Bake for 5 minutes or until topping is bubbly. Remove from the oven and immediately sprinkle each matzah with 2 tablespoons of chocolate chips. After half a minute, use a metal butter knife (or frosting knife) to spread chocolate evenly.

Cool on wire racks and then refrigerate for at least half an hour until the chocolate hardens.

Serves 8.

The I-Can't-Believe-This-Is-Kosher-For-Passover Sponge Cake

If you think all Passover cakes have to be bone dry, you're in for a moist surprise with this yellow cake. The perfect birthday cake recipe - or finale for your seder meal.

Chocolate Macaroons

It wouldn't be Passover without the macaroons! This recipe calls for chocolate, which makes the 'roons all the more irresistible.

Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Simple. Elegant. Delicious. (And if you happen to be in Israel, strawberries are even in season - and cheap - this time of year!)

Mock Chestnut Torte

This is, hands down, the best Pesach dessert. Ever. It's a taste bud-blowing experience that comes straight from Marcy Goldman's "A Treasury of Jewish Holiday Baking" (1998). Mashed sweet potatoes are a surprising but spot-on substitute for pureed chestnut paste, which isn't available "kosher for Passover". This is so sinfully good, you won't want to wait for Pesach!
