Easy, No-Bake Chocolate Matzo Cake Recipe

Easy, No-Bake Chocolate Matzo Cake Recipe
3.3 from 4 ratings
This fun and easy no-bake “cake” was invented because of the Passover restriction on leavening agents, which makes baking tough. It only has 3 ingredients, and it takes about 10 minutes to prepare. It requires no baking because it sets in the refrigerator. I know the kosher wine sounds like a bizarre ingredient, but combined with the matzo and chocolate, the wine flavor is very mellow. The alcohol content in the sweet kosher wine is very low; to make it more kid-friendly, you can substitute kosher grape juice. The texture of the finished product is somewhere between a candy bar and a chocolate truffle cake. Use pareve bittersweet chocolate if you want to keep this recipe dairy free. Kids can easily help with this chocolate cake recipe. Once the melted chocolate has cooled slightly, there is nothing hot to burn little fingers. A word of warning: Melted chocolate likes to get on fingers, clothes, the tabletop, etc. Prepare to get a little bit messy! I like to line my table with parchment paper or newspaper before starting to keep things neat.
