“You don’t have to be Jewish to love Levy’s Real Jewish Rye,” was the tagline of a brilliant advertisement. And it’s the line that came to mind the first time I served these no-bake morsels. I made them for a friend for Passover, the Jewish holiday during which nothing leavened is eaten and cracker-like matzo stands in for the daily loaf. Now I make them all year long, just because they’re great.
A simple mix of crumbled matzo, dried fruit (I used cranberries) and chocolate chips (I used minis) held together with melted chocolate and butter, these could not be simpler. The mixture is a little difficult to work with as it’s pretty soft when you first mix it up – I used a cookie scoop to form the “morsels” and mini muffin tins to get mine to hold their shape while they froze.
