Emily’s Matza Crunch Clusters

Standard

Our friend Emily truly has a gift. She can take chocolate and make anything delicious. I know, you’re thinking – duh, it’s chocolate. But seriously, not all chefs are as masterful with chocolate as Emily. Just take her Passover treats as an example – Matza Crunch Clusters.

I’ll admit, it’s an oddity how much I like matza. Most people say that is tastes blah. Maybe I just have happy associations with it. As a girl, I grew up two blocks from a large Jewish synagogue in Penna. Next door to that was a kosher deli, and the owner, Mr. Kaplan, was always kind to me. Every time I went in, he had something tasty for me to try and it was in his deli I learned to love matza.

But I digress – Emily’s Matza Crunch is so much more than just the sum of its parts: roasted matza farfel and pecans, enrobed in rich, dark chocolate. It’s sweet and salty at once and the recipe is pretty much fool-proof, as she shared it with me. All you need to do is roast in the oven, warm chocolate in a slow cooker and stir. This is a super recipe for the family to help with!

Not celebrating Passover? Seriously, try this candy anyhow! Emily’s gift for chocolate makes it a sweet treat that anyone can love! The simplicity of the recipe combines to a luscious candy that, personally, I’d be happy to eat any time of year.

Of course, I have been known to eat plain matza all year long, too… like I said, it’s an oddity!

Happy Passover!
