Chocolate Covered Passover Matzo is a classic dessert that is always a part of our traditional Seder! It’s probably the easiest dessert to make and a fun baking activity with the kids!


  • 4 whole matzo pieces
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
  • 20-ounce bag semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup chopped walnuts


  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
  2. Break the matzo pieces in half and place on a baking tray lined with either aluminum foil (sprayed with cooking spray) or a silicone baking mat.
  3. Melt butter and dark brown sugar in a small saucepot over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to thicken, around 5 minutes.
  4. Spread the butter and sugar mixture on top of the matzo pieces and bake until the mixture is bubbling and thick, about 15 minutes, careful not to burn.
  5. Remove from the oven and let cool to room temperature.
  6. Place the chocolate chips into a microwave-safe bowl and cook on low in 30-second increments until chocolate is nearly melted. Remove from microwave and stir until all chocolate is melted.
  7. Using a rubber spatula, spread the melted chocolate over the matzo pieces. Immediately sprinkle the chopped walnuts on top.
  8. Place in the refrigerator to cool completely, about 30 minutes.
  9. Break the chocolate covered matzo into chunks before serving.
  10. Store in an airtight container or in freezer bags to freeze.


  • You can use light brown sugar as a substitute for dark brown sugar. It will come out the same!
  • Be careful when you’re melting the butter and sugar in the saucepot. You don’t want it to burn.
  • Use whatever nuts you have on hand, like pecans. 
  • You can store the Chocolate Covered Matzo in the freezer for up to 3 months.
