Lydia (The Perfect Pantry)

This is sure to become a favorite with the kids in our family (none of whom will eat horseradish....). Thanks for sharing this great recipe.


I'm glad to see I'm not the only non-Jewish blogger tinkering with Passover recipes. :)

I think this is going on my to-do list for the weekend.

Claudia (cook eat FRET)

i'm the jew who sadly has not been to a sedar in forever. i live too far from family and being in nashville means i am usually the token jew in the room. funny enough i have a standing invitation to one of the better sedars food wise. and it's in baltimore.

all this to say that if i were going - which i am not - i would bring this along as a gift because it sounds wonderful.

but otherwise, right now - my life is in no need of either chocolate or butter.

ever again for as long as i live. or tomorrow. whichever comes first.

My dad had a (decidedly non-Jewish) girlfriend who used to make these with saltines instead of matzoh, for anyone reading this out in the goy hinterlands.


I have never tried this before. I am a fan of matzohs,chocolate and butter so I have to make a batch. Thanks for your story.

Dining Dish

Nona Nielsen Parker, the former owner of Glasz Cafe made the matzoh candy and it was delicious. I'm going to make this recipe add some salt and dried cherries as well.

Good Yuntive Everyone!


My sister introduced me to saltine toffee, but these matzos look just as great (and would be BIGGER!). Such an easy and delicious treat.


Simple AND YUMMY? I'm in :).


In our Church of England household, we used saltines for this recipe... but we used saltines for almost everything!

This is what the cute ,sweet pope should have been crunching on during mass. That wafer he had was big and not tasty. I could tell.
This looks tasty and easy to make.


Wow, is this ever timely. When I was at the supermarket last week, I was wheeling past the Passover aisle, when I spotted some dark chocolate covered matzohs.
I brought them home, and they were good, but I was saddened that they were not salty, as I had hoped. I love chocolate and salt together (try a $7.50 Barcelona Bar and tell me it's not worth the absurd price- and Korova cookies, ow!). Now I can make my own salty ones. Thanks!


Ooh... this just looks fabulous!


I'll convert to any religion for a day if it has a big meal attached to it. And especially if I get to have some of that delicious chocolate buttercrunch matzoh!


I am *so* making this. I think I've had the saltine version at a Methodist bake sale. Need I say that the only thing better than salty cracker things topped with butter is salty cracker things topped with butter and chocolate?

White On Rice Couple

Passover recipes is something I have always wanted to dive into. This dish is a great start is does look so "ridiculously easy"!! Oh goodness, there are only a few ingredients and they look soooo good!

We Are Never Full

Now this is clever. Kudos! Great post...

Happy Passover (belated!) to anyone who celebrated.


Yum. This was the third dessert I was going to make for the seder we were invited to, but I was so tired after the first two that I never got to it. It's still very much on my mind, however...


OH Baby!! That looks delicious!!!


This is absolutely delicious. Saw the recipe on a different site last week and started making them- very easy to make and consistently good. (And way cheaper to make then buy- saw a box at Whole Foods half the size of what this batch turns out and they were $9)

Patricia Scarpin

These are new to me, Julie, but I'm sure they're great - one just can't go wrong with chocolate. :)

I love the new template!

Susan from Food Blogga

I never knew you could make matzoh into sweet bites like this, Julie. They look terrific!
ps--I like the new look--simple and clean. Looks great.


This is such a great idea! I absolutely love matza, but never thought of it as a dessert alternative. Do you think it will work well with honey instead of sugar?

Julie, this looks stupendous and easy - you've got me thinking that I should definitely incorporate this into my own life (I'm always jealous of the passover menus this time of year anyhow)...now, where to find Matzoh in Hawaii...hmmm. I like the new look, too!!


Julie, your recipes and photos are always a delight. Every single post is memorable..and droolworthy. This post is no exception. Loved reading it and looking at that picture.

Oatmeal Cookie Guy

OMG this looks good. I was recently introduced to motzoh w/ peanut butter and motzoh w/ cream cheese. I've got to try this one!


My family makes a very similar version of this (not for seder) we call cracker candy, everything is the same except we use saltine crackers where you use matzoh. It's the biggest hit a Christmas parties! I am definitely going to try the matzoh next time!


Lydia, I don’t blame them for not eating horseradish. That stuff is wicked hot.

Adele, Passover seems like such a cooking event that I feel I should do something for it.

Claudia, Nashville and seder just don’t seem like they belong in the same sentence.

Rebecca, that’s a good cause. I hope you were successful.

Kristen, good to know. That way there’s an excuse to make them at any time of the year.

Kim, I’m a fan of those things too.

Dara, I just tried googling yuntive – a word I’ve never heard before – and your comment was the first entry.

Kate, I can attest: easy and delicious.

Lore, simple and yummy is one of my favorite combinations.

Fairfax, this saltine thing seems to be widespread.

Bee, I think the pope would like this.

Lindy, I think you’ll like your own much better.

Ann, they’re pretty darned good!

Anne, I feel the same way!

Sarah, that saltine version seems to be everywhere. I don’t know how I’ve missed its existence up to now.

WoRC, I enjoy recipes that have a limited number of ingredients but yield something great.

WaNF, Thanks and Happy Passover to you too.

Julie, both your Passover desserts sounded wonderful. I don’t think you missed these at all!

Elizabeth, they really are delicious.

Laura, way cheaper to make them yourself!

Patricia, I agree – one can’t go wrong with chocolate. That’s a good motto.

Susan, thanks!

Vasilisa, I’m not sure honey would get crunchy the way buttercrunch made from sugar does.

Michelle, thanks! And while I bet you can find matzoh in Hawaii I guess it will cost a fortune.

Sher, that’s so nice! Thanks.

OCG, matzoh with peanut butter, huh? I bet that’s good.

Keegan, and I’m going to try it with saltines!


Oh my goodness. I've never been so excited to raid my mother in laws matzoh supply in my life!


Good Lord! if I hadn't eaten all of my matzo, I'd be making that right now!

onsequently, it frequently looks like almost all of the crowd has chosen to get roaring drunk just before they arrive in this area. Which could possibly be excellent enjoyable when the climatic conditions is apparent, and the temperatures aresomeplace mentioned before the freezing mark.

I was so tired after the fidrst two that I never got to it. It's still very much on my mind, however...
