How to Make Passover Salted Dark Chocolate Matzah Bark

by Arielle J on April 3, 2015



When Passover rolls around, I head straight to the farmers market to pick up apples because my mom calls me the “Charoset Maker.” Last year I made Vanilla-Coconut Charoset. Check out the recipe here.

But this year, my husband and I are going to my in-laws house for the first night (and my immediate family is hosting the second night).
So this year, I’m in charge of dessert.

My husband’s family LOVES chocolate so instead of buying packaged chocolate-covered matzah, I decided to healthify it and make it myself!

Instead of regular white matzah (which often causes constipation because of the lack of fiber), I swapped it with spelt matzah, which is higher fiber option. It does contain gluten, but some people who have sensitivity to gluten and wheat, are less sensitive to spelt.

This is an easy and delish dessert that is perfect for the seder… and all week during Passover!


Salted Dark Chocolate Matzah Bark
4 pieces spelt matzah
1 bar of dark chocolate (3.5 oz) or approz 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
1/4 cup pecans, chopped (or nut of choice)
coarse sea salt

1. Place matzah on a parchment-lined or tin-foil lined baking sheet  (If they don’t all fit, you can break them into pieces)
2. In a small sauce pan, on low heat, heat up chocolate (pro tip: break up the pieces of chocolate so it melts faster.) Stir around the chocolate with a wooden spoon to prevent it from burning. Once all chocolate is melted, take the pan off of the stove.
3. Using a fork, splatter the chocolate on top of the matzah. To do this: dip the fork into the melted chocolate and move your hand back and forth quickly over matzah to create a “drizzle” look, or use a spoon or knife and spread the chocolate over the matzah or dip the matzah it into the pan of chocolate.
4. Sprinkle pecans and sea salt over the chocolate-covered matzah.
5. Place the baking sheet into the refrigerator for approx 5-10 minutes until the chocolate hardens.

*Serves approx 8-12 people

  • Use more/less chocolate as you wish. Please note – I’m not religious. some of the ingredients listed above may not be kosher for passover.
