Chocolate Raspberry Torte

This chocolate torte was very rich and fudgy and I’m trying to convince myself it was healthy too! Since it had to be Kosher for Passover (which means no flour, leavening, etc.), it was made with almond meal – and it had a lot of raspberries, and so clearly it has a lot of protein, vitamins, and nutrients, right? And dark chocolate is certainly good for you…In any case, it was delicious, especially with the tart raspberry-lemon sauce that I whipped up at the last minute and poured liberally on top.


Chocolate Matzo Toffee

Honestly, I had never heard of this decadent treat before, but it is my friend Julie’s Passover family tradition, so we made it together. It is incredibly addictive and I had to make a second batch because I ate too much of it before the Seder! Here are some photos of the process.

Matzo spread out on the pan, waiting the caramel and chocolate to be spread on top:

The recipe is very easy, it’s just a matter of making sure you spread the caramel when it’s at just the right consistency, before it cooks too long and burns! Hannah Kaminsky has a good version of the recipe on her blog, which can be seen here.
