Vegan Matzo Crack

This Matzo Crack Passover dessert recipe is naturally sweetened and so easy to make!  It is the perfect addition to any Seder that kids and adults will love.  I call it the Passover version of chocolate bark.  But what really makes this dessert stand out is the middle layer.  The center layer tastes like caramel and yet is made from creamy almond butter, coconut oil, maple syrup, vanilla and salt.  Simply melt those ingredients together on your stovetop and pour overtop the matzo crackers.  Place in your freezer to let that layer set before adding the refined sugar-free and vegan chocolate layer overtop.  I like to top the entire matzo crack situation off with flaky sea salt to help bring out all the flavors.  Altogether it is crispy, nutty, sweet, chocolate-y and salty.  So good!  And so addictive!

Description

Scale

Ingredients

  • 4 Matzo crackers squares

For the “caramel” layer

  • 2/3 cup raw creamy almond butter (I like Trader Joe’s the best)
  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup unrefined coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine salt
For the chocolate layer:

For garnish:


Instructions

  1. Line a large rimmed half sheet baking sheet with parchment paper or wax paper.  Place matzo in one single layer touching but not overlapping.  Break up matzah to fit if needed.
  2. In a medium saucepan over medium heat add the almond butter, maple syrup and coconut oil.  Stir until everything is melted and well combined.  Remove the pot from the heat and stir in the vanilla and salt.  Pour overtop the matzo and and spread out with a spatula into one even layer.  Place in freezer for 20 minutes.
  3. Melt the chocolate until it is smooth and liquid.  Pour overtop the almond butter/”caramel” layer and quickly spread out with a spatula into one even layer.  Sprinkle with flaky sea salt if desired.  Place in the freezer to allow the chocolate to set (about 10 minutes).
  4. When ready to enjoy break into smaller squares for serving.  It will start to melt at room temperature after about 30 minutes so return to the freezer if not serving immediately.

Notes

*Alternatively you can use 3/4 cup vegan refined sugar-free chocolate chips + 1 tablespoon unrefined coconut oil.  Microwave together on high for 2 minutes and stir.

      I actually haven’t found an absolute favorite that I would highly recommend. I think any gluten-free matzo crackers will work fine for this recipe since you don’t end up tasting it that much with all the toppings 🙂
