Happy Eastover! Last year my rice crispie egg post definitely favorited the Easter half of Eastover so I thought this year should pay tribute to the passover half. I have to start off by making it clear that the future dietitian in me DOES NOT endorse this recipe. But the inner fat kid in me? She definitely endorses this recipe. This Dark Chocolate-Toffee Matzo Bark is one of the most addictive things I’ve made in a while.
There are so many great things happening here. It’s crunchy, sweet, salty, and basically melts in your mouth.
A few of the toppings can give this a healthy disguise, but don’t be fooled…it is not. The slivered almonds, dried, cranberries, pistachios, whole wheat matzo and dark chocolate- pretty healthy. The butter and brown sugar caramel hiding under the chocolate- NOT healthy.
Hope everyone has a happy healthy Passover or Easter. Or if you’re me, BOTH!
