Welcome to another recipe for Passover and yet another memory from childhood spent in Israel. If you have gone through my previous video you would know by now that earlier I didn’t like Matzo much and neither did I follow any traditional holiday. Over the years, I have realized that I have started to experiment more with food by infusing culture and trying different recipes.
During these years I have also tried different recipes with Matzo every time my Mother-in-law used to buy it for us. Over time, the companies used to sell chocolate matzo which was crispy, sweet and covered with chocolate. It was so heavenly. I couldn’t ask for anything more. 😊 Even though it was priced higher than the normal matzo. It was the best thing I had which had Matzo in it until they stopped stocking and selling it.
I got inspiration from my childhood and decided to make my very own version of Chocolate Matzo.
Enjoy it with some Tea and Coffee.
4 sheets matzo
1 cup vegan chocolate chips
¼ cup cocoa powder
¼ cup almond slivers
¼ cup coconut flakes
¼ cup or less vegan butter
½ cup hot water or a little bit less
In the blender add chocolate chips, cocoa powder, butter and hot water. Now Blend it until everything is smooth and your get a nice consistency.
In a small pan, Roast some coconut flakes and slivered almonds on a medium heat for 5 to 10 minutes. Make sure to keep stirring and mixing it in the pan as it can burn very quickly so make sure to keep an eye on it.
Roast until it is crispy and turns brown in colour.
Now add Chocolate spread on the Matzah and sprinkle the crispy almond coconut mix and allow it to cool down for min in the refrigerator.
When it’s ready – break it into small pieces and store in the container.
You can always experiment by adding frozen or fresh fruits to your matzah on top of your chocolate spread. It is that easy and simple to make.
It’s better to eat it while it’s still crispy, you can store the leftovers in the container, knowing it will get soft, but still an amazing serving, that will go very well with tea or coffee, on the next day!
