What is Matzah?

Matzah, also spelled matzo or matza, is a type of unleavened bread that is traditionally eaten by Jews during the Passover holiday. It is made from flour and water, and is baked quickly to prevent the dough from rising. Matzah is usually eaten with various toppings, such as butter, cheese, or jam, or used in dishes like matzah ball soup.

Matzah is not typically eaten during Hanukkah, a holiday that commemorates the miracle of the oil that burned for eight days in the ancient Temple in Jerusalem, and is celebrated with the lighting of the menorah, a candelabra with nine branches, one for each night of Hanukkah. Although matzah is traditionally a Passover dish, we like to include it in our Hanukkah celebrations as well. The history and symbolism these crispy crackers represent is so special to the Jewish faith, I’m always looking for ways to include it in different dishes throughout the holiday.

I’m always looking for new treats to make for my kids during the holidays. Hanukkah particularly is one of my favorite times to take traditional goodies and add a little spin to them. I didn’t grow up celebrating Hanukkah, so when I started observing the holiday with my husband, it was like a whole new beautiful world to me. There is something so calming and grounding, with the lighting of the menorah and reciting of the blessings. I cherish this time so deeply with my family and absolutely love passing on this tradition to my kids. 


How to Make Chocolate Dipped Matzah with Sprinkles

I love Chocolate Dipped Matzah because it’s so simple to make and a great recipe to get kids involved in the kitchen. Here’s how to make it:

  1. Melted baking chocolate or chocolate chips and then dipped the matzah crackers in it.
  2. While the chocolate is still warm, get out your sprinkles and go to town. If you wait too long, the chocolate will harden and the sprinkles will have a hard time sticking, so it’s best to do it right away. It’s no secret that I love my dye-free sprinkles. For this recipe I used these blue and white sprinkles from Supernatural.

  1. Hi Catherine,
    Sadly I’ve already bought several packages of chocolate covered Matzah. My question is this . . . Is there a way to take some of the pieces and, somehow, warm them so I can add some sprinkles. My granddaughters won’t eat the more adult desserts. They will love the already chocolate covered matzah, but I know they will absolutely love them more with colored sprinkles.

    1. Hi Helaine! Hmmm – I’m not sure the best way to warm them. You could try putting them in the microwave on a very low defrost setting and see if that works to loosen up the chocolate and make the sprinkles stick? If it were me though, I would make some of this “Magic Chocolate Shell” and drizzle just enough on top for the sprinkles to stick. Let me know if either of those work!
