There are many traditions about the Passover Seder that Elaine has enjoyed over the years: reciting the blessings, her children reading the four questions, the familiar rhythm of the meal, the annual comments about gefilte fish and haroseth, her mother-in-law's amazing matzah ball soup, and the hunt for the afikomen.
Creating desserts has been a worthy quest during Passover. Elaine drew inspiration from the fruits, nuts, and of course, matzah, that play such an integral role in every Passover meal. It is with these classic Passover flavors in mind that we adapted a few of our popular chocolates and confections, while also developing new creations that will bring a sweet ending to the Passover Seder.
Our Chocolate Matzah Almond Toffee is a twist on our very popular brown butter toffee, which is filled with matzah and sliced almonds then dipped in dark chocolate and topped with toasted almonds and fleur de sel.
For a deceptively simple but delicious treat, we surround crispy matzah with dark chocolate to begin our Dark Chocolate Matzah Bark and then finish it off with roasted, salted pistachios, crystallized ginger and candied orange peel.
Finally, we adapted our popular Coconutty Bar to create our own version of the classic Chocolate Almond Coconut Macaroon. Think Almond Joy in the shape of a haystack. We combine chopped roasted salted almonds with the coconut for a delightful texture/taste experience, and then dip our haystack in dark chocolate with a dash of sea salt to balance out the sweet.
