It turns bland matzo into a crave-able dessert with two amazing layers: a dairy-free and refined sugar-free caramel layer topped with a dark chocolate layer that is then sprinkled with flaky sea salt. Together they create a candy bar-like dessert that is Passover perfection! Simply freeze the dessert, break into pieces and watch it disappear at your Seder!
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!

- 4 Matzo crackers squares
For the "caramel" layer
- ⅔ cup raw creamy almond butter (I like Trader Joe's the best)
- ⅓ cup pure maple syrup
- ¼ cup melted coconut oil
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- ¼ teaspoon fine salt
- 1 cup vegan chocolate chips, melted
- Line a large rimmed half sheet baking sheet with parchment paper. Place matzo in one single layer touching but not overlapping. Break up matzah to fit if needed.
- In a medium mixing bowl add the almond butter, maple syrup, melted coconut oil, vanilla and salt. Stir until everything is melted and well combined. Pour overtop the matzo and and spread out with a spatula into one even layer. Place in freezer for 20 minutes to set.
- 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).
- When ready to enjoy break into smaller squares for serving. The center layer will start to melt at room temperature after about 30 minutes so return to the freezer if not serving immediately.

what gf matzo crackers do you use?
Elaine Gordon says
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 🙂
The yehuda brand gluten free matzah is great! That is what I used and it turned out great.
I used to make the classic version with butter and sugar, but this is just as good and so much healthier.
The almond butter caramel sauce is so good I’m considering making it separate to eat throughout the year!
Elaine Gordon says
Thank you so much, Erin! You are reminding me I should make the almond butter caramel sauce this week! Thank you LOL! Best, Elaine
What can you use instead of coconut oil? Avocado oil?
Elaine Gordon says
You can use vegan butter instead of coconut oil. Avocado oil won't work because you need a dat that is solid at room temperature. I hope this helps! Happy early Passover!
Cherie Sarachan says
Can you use peanut butter if there’s almond allergies?
Elaine Gordon says
Hi, Cherie! Yes, absolutely! Any nut or seed butter will work. Just make sure it is smooth, creamy and unsweetened + unsalted. If it is sweetened or salted just adjust the additional maple syrup and salt listed in the recipe accordingly. Please let me know if you have any questions. Happy Passover! Best, Elaine
