6 AMAZING Kosher for Passover Dessert Recipes

(Note: Not all suggested ingredient brands are certified Kosher, but you can easily swap them out!)


1) Matzah Brittle

A true Passover classic! Nuts and salt garnish optional, but this is the time to get in touch with your inner chef and make it *gourmet*. You won't be able to stop yourself after the first piece. Get the recipe here.


2) Coconut Macaroons

Soft and chewy on the inside, as they should be. Feel free to dunk the whole thing in chocolate if you feel so inclined. Macaroons might remind you of your grandparents' house, but at least it'll help to recall a life before quarantine, right? Get the recipe here

3) Chocolate Torte

This is one my self-proclaimed "dessert-snob" mother swears by, so you know it must be good. Make your own Jewish mother proud with this recipe.




4) Brownies

Simple, but a definite crowd-pleaser (not that you should be inviting a crowd during these trying times). Easy recipe here for those who are a little challenged in the kitchen.



5) Hazelnut Chocolate Thumbprint Cookies

Satisfy your chocolate cravings with these delicious Passover cookies, or fill them with your choice of jam instead. If there's fruit in them, they MUST be healthy. Get the recipe here.

6) Apple Cake

Last but not least, a tried and true apple cake that will make you forget that chametz ever existed. Enjoy the traditional treat with this recipe.
