Matzoh/Matzo Icebox Cake Makes for a Delightfully Easy Passover Dessert!

What you will need: You will need the following ingredients for this recipe.

First, for the whipped cream:

  • 2 cups cold heavy cream, for the base
  • ¼ cup of powdered sugar, for sweetness
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon, for a kick of spice
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract, to balance out the two

What you’ll need for the chocolate:

  • 1 ½ cup more heavy cream, for the base
  • 3 cups chocolate chips, these will melt and blend with the heavy cream

And lastly, what you will need to assemble the cake itself:

  • Use 8 Matzoh/Matzo crackers, large, to provide a solid base for the cake itself.
  • Add extra chocolate shavings to provide even more garnish.

And now, the directions for the recipe itself:

  1. Start by making the whipped cream. Combine ingredients (heavy cream, etc.) in a large bowl. Use a hand mixer or the bowl of a stand mixer with the whisk attachment engaged. Then beat together until they are combined and you see soft peaks forming.
  2. For the chocolate, place the chocolate chips in a bowl. Then using medium heat, simmer the heavy cream. Once hot, pour the cream over the chocolate. Allow this mixture to sit for 10 minutes or so, until you see that the mixture has smoothed out and the chocolate chips have melted.
  3. For the Matzoh/Matzo cracker cake base, start by taking a cooling rack and putting it inside a sheet pan. Put one cracker on the rack, and spread chocolate over it. Add the whipped cream on top of the chocolate. Repeat until all of the crackers and whipped cream have been used.
  4. Use the remaining chocolate to drench the sides of the cake. Make sure all sides are adequately covered. Use the chocolate shavings as a topping. Next, switch the cake to a serving plate. Last, refrigerate for around 4 hours. The crackers should have softened to a cake-like texture.
