A Passover Dilemma

by Erin

This weekend, the BCD family is going to Detroit to celebrate Passover with our extended family. It is a great time every year and we are so excited about it! Stay tuned for a big post about the ridiculous and delicious meal we have planned.

But, for now, I am deciding which dessert I want to make to bring to Detroit (to save us some time since there is much other cooking to be done!), and I need your help!

Team Passover 2007

Usually, I make (what I call) Matzo Candy, a recipe from my dear friend Kim from college. Recently, Dave Lebovitz posted a vamped-up version of the Matzo Candy recipe that he calls "Chocolate-Covered Caramelized Matzo Crunch" and it looks so good I can barely stand it! So, I wanted to make that, but my cousin Stephanie is planning on making something similar, which was quite delicious last year.

Sooo, I was thinking instead that I would make coconut macaroons, using Ina Garten's recipe (of course).

Help me decide which recipe to make! Vote in the poll on the left-hand side of the screen (and leave a comment if you like)!

UPDATE: I have picked one of these recipes! Stay tuned for our Passover Seder post coming soon, where my choice will be revealed! Thanks to all who voted, you were VERY helpful ;)

Happy (early) Passover,



  1. It is the EXACT SAME RECIPE. And I also saw the David L. version too. I figured as much although i thought our versions were different. I am making: the crunch, almond jam-print cookies and brownies. I hope you chose macaroons!

    I SO wanted to make those choco-walnut cookies Deb posted on smitten, but alas, I don't have the equipment to make my own powdered sugar
