Oh my!! - someone take these away from me before I eat them all. These are sooo good and very addictive. Easy to make (about 5 crumbled matzoh crackers made 4 cups) and watch out - these will be gone in a flash. I used chocolate, walnuts, and raisins in this batch and unsalted matzohs. Delicious!
I went looking for a recipe to use up some of my farfel, and this was perfect. I made two batches - one with chocolate chips, a few walnuts and a handful of dried sweetened cranberries, and one with just peanut butter chips. The PB batch was a bigger hit, with barely any left over even after the heavy sedar meal. I did find it was messy and challenging to drop the spoonfuls onto the wax paper, so I pressed about half of it onto wax paper, bar style, in a low sided pan. After chilling for a short period, it broke up easily into bite sized people. Next time I make this, I wouldn't bother with trying to drop them separately.
This was a big hit! I followed the recipe and made two batches. What I found helpful was to add a little water to the chocolate chips before microwaving; just enough to wet the chips, not a lot. This made the chocolate clusters easier to spoon out onto the cookie sheet. Also I did not have waxed paper so I laid the clusters onto aluminum foil and that was fine. If you're not comfortable adding water to the chocolate chips I dipped my spoon into water prior to spooning out clusters on to the cookie sheet and that helped.
I followed the recipe and added the optional coconut. These were a big hit at this year's seder. Everyone wanted the recipe.
I made these for Seder with Fruit bits, walnuts and semi sweet morsels and crumbled whole wheat matzo!! The plate was empty in less than 5 minutes!!! Wonderful!!!!!
Chia, these are fantastic! I used chocolate, wallnuts, matzoh and dry cranberry. They were fast to make and even faster to be gone.
This looks like a great way to use up some left over matzah!
