Test Kitchen Favorite: Dark Chocolate Matzah Bark

In our dark chocolate matzah bark recipe, we take the Passover staple and give it a delicious sweet twist.

With Passover fast approaching, we thought we’d take some time to think about fun, unexpected ways we could incorporate matzah into our meals. Matzah is unleavened bread traditionally eaten during the Jewish holiday of Passover. Here, it’s turned into a chocolate bark we can’t get enough of. Covered in sweet dulce de leche (caramel) and dark chocolate, this is an easy and satisfying dessert for all to enjoy. Check out the recipe and video below to learn how to make it.

To create a double boiler, be sure to use a heatproof bowl that fits over the pot without touching the boiling water. You want to create a seal between the bowl and the pot to trap the steam. This gentle melting technique prevents the chocolate from sticking and burning.

Maldon sea salt is extra flavorful, so use only as much as desired based on your taste preference.

2 sheets matzah
6 ounces dark chocolate ⅓ cup dulce de leche
1 teaspoon coarse Maldon sea salt
1 parchment paper

heavy object
8″ medium pot (optional)
baking sheet
6″ small pot

1. Crush Matzah
Using a heavy object, crush matzah into small pieces.

2. Melt Chocolate
Place chocolate in a medium heatproof bowl and microwave in 30-second intervals until melted. Alternatively, create a double boiler: Bring 2-inches water to a boil in a medium pot over high heat (see Recipe Tip). Place bowl with chocolate over pot and stir until chocolate is melted and smooth, 2-4 minutes.

3. Assemble Matzah Bark
Transfer melted chocolate to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Using a spatula, spread into a smooth, even layer. Scatter over crushed matzah in an even layer.

4. Heat Dulce de Leche
Place dulce de leche in a small pot over low heat and heat, stirring, until runny, about 5 minutes. Pour over bark.

5. Season Matzah Bark
Sprinkle as much Maldon sea salt as desired over bark. Place in refrigerator or freezer to chill until set, at least 20 minutes or overnight.

6. Plate Chocolate Matzah Bark
Break chilled matzah bark into pieces, big and small, and indulge your chocolate craving.
