Passover Dessert – Matzahmisu!


A cousin brought us two boxes of chocolate covered matzah for Passover. It was decided that we should make a dessert with them and as a group came up with this idea. Maybe it’s already been done, but we’re pretty pleased with what we concocted.

Two boxes of chocolate covered matzah

A can of dulce de leche

amaretto liqueur

whipping cream

slivered or sliced blanched almonds

Put some amaretto and some dulce de leche drizzle in the bottom of a baking pan. Break up some boards of matzah and put the pieces on top, saving the broken off bits of chocolate. spread some dulce de leche on this then another layer of matzah. Cover with some dulce de leche, some broken up chocolate pieces, saving a few for garnish on top.

Whip up whipped cream with some amaretto until it’s stiff. No need to add sugar to this. Cover top of matzah with whipped cream, sprinkle on remaining chocolate crumbs and slivered toasted almonds.

We put ours in the freezer for a couple hours, but putting it in the refrigerator might work as well. It was a hit. It was even better day 2, yes we had some left over but not for long. Next year, we’re going to add a shot of expresso on the bottom as well as the amaretto. We think that’ll be delish.

We might not wait until next Passover to make this again. It was sooo good. Hardly the “bread of affliction!”
