Mint-chocolate Caramel Matza

Another great thing about this year's first Passover seder was the dessert. My mom's cookies were beautiful (and tasty), and Meredith made a very special treat as well.
A couple weeks ago she found some mint-chocolate chips and decided that Passover was the best time to use them.

Funnily enough, my friend the Food Floozie made her own version (nearly the same) and posted hers a couple days ago. Hers uses a thicker topping and is cut really nicely. Meredith's is more "rustic" looking. Both are fantastic, of course!

  2. Contrary to everyone else's opinion that matzah is cardboard (I seem to be the only one who can eat it without discomfort!), I think it's the perfect vehicle for all that sugary goodness. Gonna have to try it with mint ... sigh. And Mom's cookies look amazing!!!
