Passover Deliciousness

Well, once again Moses's plagues have won freedom for the yeast-deprived Hebrews. And once again, as tradition dictates (well, our tradition anyway), we have commemorated their mad dash over the Red Sea floor by telling their story, eating, and watching renowned Jewish actor Charlton Heston ask Pharaoh to release the Hebrews from "bundage". (He really might not be capable of producing an "O" sound...)

And for dessert? Mmm! Chocolate-covered matzah topped with haroset. Ridiculously good.

Slowly melt chocolate chips with a little bit of olive oil and spread it over broken pieces of matzah. Chill in the fridge until the chocolate re-hardens.

For the haroset: pulse grated apples, dried apricots, craisins, and crushed walnuts in the food processor until they form a chunky spread.

Wait until the kids have found the afikomen, then go to town!
