Matzo Crack!

Happy Passover! I’m not Jewish, but I love Jewish traditions… and food! Passover is a celebration of the freeing of the Israelites from Egypt over 3,000 years ago. It is said that when the Israelites were freed, they left in such a hurry that they could not wait for bread dough to rise. In commemoration, only unleavened bread is eaten during Passover, hence, matzo!
When I was doing my medical residency, I was very often fed very well by my friend Rachel. I worked long and brutal hours in the hospital and Rachel always looked out for me; she is an incredible cook and she always made a vegan version of whatever she cooked so I would be well-fed. She used to make me amazing matzo crack during Passover. Luckily my medical training days are over, but she gave me the recipe so now I make it myself!
Here’s a pic I took of Rachel one of the many times she made me a late-night meal in the hospital– this was a vegan honey cake she made me for Rosh Hashanah. She’s so cute!!
Matzo crack is so named because it is the most addictive snack you’ll ever eat. You can’t put it down and after a while you’re in a diabetic coma but it was SO WORTH IT. It’s matzo covered in gooey toffee, chocolate and pecans.
Here is the recipe– enjoy!!
