Need a great Passover dessert recipe? This sweet Caramel Chocolate Bark is perfect for Passover, and so easy to make.

Some of the best desserts and treats are made for Easter and Passover, but one of my favorite sweet recipes for Passover is this Chocolate Caramel Bark recipe using matzo. Matzo is an unleavened bread that is a staple in Passover recipes. This Passover dessert recipe is mouth-watering and very easy to make.

Caramel Chocolate Bark Ingredients

  • Matzo
  • Butter (1 cup)
  • Brown Sugar (1 cup)
  • Semi-sweet Chocolate Chips (1 cup)


  1. Line a baking pan with aluminum foil and parchment paper. This is important because when the caramel melts it can get very sticky, and can even ruin your pan.
  2. Fill the bottom of the pan with one layer of plain matzo boards.
  3. Melt the butter and brown sugar on the stovetop. Bring the mixture to a slow boil stirring frequently, and let it boil for exactly 3 minutes. Make sure to keep an eye on it, so that it doesn't burn.
  4. Carefully pour the caramel over the matzo on the pan, covering as much as you can. Use a rubber spatula to spread the caramel around the pan, trying to coat the pieces evenly.
  5. Put the pan in the oven at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes until the caramel has melted down.
  6. Sprinkle the chocolate chips over the melted caramel. Use the spatula to help the chocolate melt and spread it around the pan, again covering the matzo as much as possible.
  7. Use the handle of the spatula to break the matzo into the bark pieces, pressing the handle into the matzo until it cracks apart.
  8. Put the pan into the freezer until it cools and sets. Once it's hardened, break it apart even more, and enjoy!

You can make this for yourself and your kids, or even bring it to a Passover seder and give it to your hostess as a great hostess gift!


Easy Easter dinner side dishes for busy moms.

Who wants to spend all day in the kitchen at Easter? I often cook a big turkey dinner, so I guess I do spend some time slaving over a hot stove. However, with some planning, help from my sisters, and some easy recipes, I manage to have some fun and minimize my time in the kitchen. I am a big fan of dishes that can be prepared ahead of time, then popped into the oven about 15 minutes before dinner (about the time it takes to make gravy and carve the meat!).

Here are a few easy and quick ideas for side dishes to go with your turkey, beef, or ham.

Parmesan Asparagus Recipe

You can get this ready ahead of time and pop it in the oven while you are making the gravy for your turkey.


1 lb. (450 g) fresh asparagus spears

3 Tbsp Grated Parmesan Grated Cheese

15 soda crackers, coarsely crushed (about 1/2 cup)

Olive Oil


Place asparagus in a shallow casserole dish or on a cookie sheet. Drizzle olive oil over asparagus. Top with cheese and cracker crumbs.

BAKE 10 to 15 min. at 350 degrees or until topping is lightly browned and asparagus is cooked (but not soft).

Parmesan Butternut Squash Recipe


3 ½ lbs Butternut squash, cut into cubes (about 1 inch)

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 garlic cloves, minced

1/2 teaspoon pepper

1/4 teaspoon cilantro

1/3 cup grated Parmesan or Romano cheese


In a large bowl, combine the cilantro, oil, garlic, pepper. Stir in the squash. Place in an ungreased casserole dish. Bake, uncovered, at 400 degrees for 45-55 minutes or until squash tender (not too soft).
If you are planning to make this ahead of time, cook for 45 minutes. Then, re-heat it for 10 – 15 minutes before serving.

Mashed Potatoes Recipe

You can pretty much make your regular mashed potatoes ahead of time, then reheat them in a covered casserole dish for about 15 – 20 minutes in the oven!

Garlic Parmesan Mashed Potatoes Recipe


7 cups peeled and cubed potatoes

6 cloves garlic, peeled

1/2 cup milk

1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated

2 tablespoons butter


Boil potatoes and garlic in a saucepan for about 20 minutes; drain. Add remaining ingredients; mash or beat with a hand mixer until smooth. Put into a covered casserole dish and then reheat in the oven for about 15 – 20 minutes before dinnertime.

Enjoy your day!
