Passover comes around every year, and you might be running out of ideas for dishes to serve during the Jewish holiday. Thankfully, there are actually a lot of options out there for Passover-friendly meals, and we wanted to look a look at some specifically Passover dessert recipes that seem promising. From cake to mousse to cookies and more, which sweet treats do you like to indulge in during the celebration?
1. Coconut Macaroons
Who doesn't love a good macaroon? These snacks feature flaked coconut, sweetened condensed milk, vanilla extract, egg whites, salt, and semi-sweet chocolate -- that's it! There's a disclaimer that says they should be gluten-free, but to check the label of each ingredient to be sure. See the easy recipe.
2. Matzoh Crack
Yea, it has a silly name, but it looks delicious! The total time to make this recipe is just one hour, so it's not even very time-intensive if you're trying to plan other Passover meal options. Brown sugar, butter, matzoh, and chocolate chips all show up in the ingredient list for this crunchy dessert.
3. Chocolate-Matzo Layer Cake
Cake is always a good choice! This is actually described as "an icebox cake-tiramisu hybrid," yummy! Chopped dark chocolate, heavy cream, coffee, and matzo sheets all make up this delicious dish.
4. Passover Chocolate Chip Meringues
More chocolate! These meringues are described as "easy to make and easy to eat," so if you're basically looking for a simple chocolate chip cookie in meringue form, this one is the way to go.
5. Passover Chocolate Mousse
This recipe comes from Kosher.com, so if you're trying to be Kosher for Passover, it's probably a good bet. Bittersweet chocolate, walnut oil, instant coffee, orange chocolate liqueur, eggs, sugar, and heavy cream are all you need.
6. Passover Apple Cake
This one looks a little more complicated, but the end result is worth it. Walnuts or pecans, cinnamon, matzo cake meal, raisins, and more all go into this delicious Passover dessert.
7. Matzo Chocolate-Mint Ice Cream Cake
Can't go wrong with Martha! This layer cake of ice cream and chocolate ganache is a beautiful addition to any Passover spread.
8. The Gooiest Ever Passover Brownies
That name has a lot to live up to, and you'll have to find out for yourself if it's true by making these brownies with cocoa powder and coconut flour.
9. Flourless Chocolate Cake for Passover
No wheat flour in this dessert! Just almond flour, orange or lemon zest, room temperature eggs, and a few other ingredients make up this gorgeous looking cake you can make for Passover or any other holiday like Easter or a birthday.
10. Passover Chocolate Torte with Raspberry Sauce
I love raspberry, so this one had to go on the list. Described as having "an airy soufflé-like texture," it's probably not the one to go with if you want something especially crispy or chewy. It also specifically includes unsalted kosher-for-Passover pareve (non-dairy) margarine in its ingredient list.
11. Passover Hazelnut Sponge Cake (Pan di Spagna Alle Nocciole)
Sponge cake you say? Why not! Add this dessert with interesting ingredients like peeled hazelnuts, potato starch, and the zest and juice of a lemon and orange to your Passover dessert list. (It seems to be dairy-free, too!)
12. Cream Cheese Chocolate Truffles
Even the name sounds delicious. The recipe for these treats suggests using coconut flakes, cocoa powder, powdered sugar, or chopped nuts for the coating.
13. Strawberry Rhubarb Compote with Matzo Streusel Topping
It doesn't get better than this. Strawberries, rhubarb stalks, matzo cake meal, and more all come together to make this perfect Passover offering.
14. Edible Flower Toffee Matzo
Ever wanted to try a dessert with edible flowers? Why not make this recipe with pastel candy melt wafers and fresh or pressed edible flowers?
15. Chocolate, Nut, and Dried Fruit Covered Matzo
One last recipe, this one from Martha Stewart again. It features dried fruit or crystallized ginger, both dark and white chocolate, and, of course, matzo. Enjoy!
