I make a lot of different types of desserts for Passover. I have two that are particularly decadent. This one and a chocolate torte that I make every year. This is by far the easier of the two. You use a piece of matzo to hold it all together. The truth is it really is a pity to only eat them one week a year.

I don't even bother with a bowl to mix these up. Everything can be mixed in a sauce pan.
- matzo - 1 piece
- margarine - 150 grams
- brown sugar - 3/4 cup
- pecans - 1 1/2 cups, chopped
- salt - pinch
- chocolate chips - 1 cup
- slivered almonds - 3 tablespoons
- Line a pan with baking paper
- Place matzo in the pan
- Melt the margarine, brown sugar, pecans and salt in a sauce pan
- Bring to a boil, lower heat and let cook for 2 minutes
- Pour mixture on the piece of matzo and bake at 350 degrees for 1 minute
- Take out of oven and sprinkle with chocolate chips
- Return to oven for 2 more minutes
- Remove from oven and spread chocolate on the pecan mixture
- Sprinkle with almonds
- Cut while hot
- Let cool and serve
Sprinkling chocolate chips on a hot cake is a great way to make a mock frosting. I do it with cakes all the time. It’s especially fun when you add colorful sprinkles on top of the cake.
