I have to admit, I haven’t done the best job with creating things for Passover over the years. This year all of that changes! I have a full week of Passover goodness to share, starting with Passover snack crack (our all time-favorite kosher for Passover treat!)

You may remember us sharing our chocolate snack crack last year. It’s basically all of our favorite snacks mixed with chocolate and then broken into bite sized pieces. My kids love it. So this year, I thought it would be fun to make a version that is kosher for Passover.

Coming up with the ingredients was easier than I thought. I knew I had to incorporate matzah (because, Passover!). Knowing that m&m’s are kosher for passover (and come in blue), I knew they had to be in there. We also wanted something a little salty, so kosher for Passover cashews it was! I knew I wanted there to be some white in there as well, just for aesthetics, so I added white chocolate chips.

Can I use any type of matzah?

Absolutely! I prefer egg matzah, just because I love to eat it in the morning with a little butter spread on it. But you are welcome to use your favorite. I would just skip the onion flavor, for obvious reasons.

Speaking of matzah… or matzo… or matzos… or matza… When I went to write this, I was typing matzah because that’s how I’ve always spelled it. But, my box says “matzos”. So, it had me wondering, how do you spell it and why are there so many different spellings?

What is the easiest way to melt the chocolate chips?

I put the chocolate chips in a small microwave-safe bowl and into the microwave for 30 seconds at a time until it’s fully melted. Stir in between each time. You’ll find that after 2-3 times, when you stir, the heat from the chocolate will melt any remaining solid pieces.

Can I use different toppings?

Yes! You most certainly can. Just double check that whatever you decide to use is kosher for Passover (obviously). If you prefer your Passover snack crack to be less sweet, you can also add some salt flakes!

Where did you find light blue m&m’s?

I bought Easter m&m’s which have the most beautiful pastel colors. Then I had my oldest pick out all of the light blue m&m’s. Don’t worry, the rest will be in an upcoming Easter recipe. I also bought a pack of mini m&m’s and used the blue. They are the perfect colors for Passover, don’t you think?!

Can I freeze it if I’m in a hurry?

You most certainly can! This will probably harden in about an hour if you freeze it. Just make sure that you don’t leave your Passover snack crack in the freezer too long or you may find that it’s very hard to break up.

Now that I’ve hopefully answered all of your questions about this Passover snack crack, let’s talk about the ingredients and the recipe!

This Passover snack crack is honestly so good, you’ll want to make it even when it’s not Passover. It also makes a great gift idea! Just pack some up in a little container, put a bow on it and bring it to the Passover seder! I’m sure your hosts will love it.

It’s great for kids, but I can tell you from experience, the adults in our home love it too! It’s almost as delicious as the kosher for Passover chocolate chip cookies I’ll be sharing later this week. Keep an eye out for those, you don’t want to miss that recipe!
