Matzoh Popzoh is a Passover dessert that – like flourless chocolate cake – you will not want to “pass over” during the rest of the year. These meringue popsicles are not only adorable, but they are also a wonderful combination of textures and flavors.
First, let’s make sure you know what matzoh crack is. Matzoh crack is a dessert that has taken Seders by storm for its ease and addictive nature. Think of matzoh crack as Passover’s candy bar made from pieces of matzoh, caramel, and chocolate. Sure, Matzoh crack would have been enough for my Seder (dayenu), but I took it to the next level.
My Passover Matzoh Popzoh is a matzoh crack sandwich on meringue cookies! It’s a Passover dessert that is chewy, crispy, chocolatey, and caramel-sweetened – as far from grandma’s rock heavy Passover mandel bread as gefilite fish is from anything that actually lived in the sea.

While Easter is the holiday most associated with eggs, Passover is even more egg-centric. There’s a hard-boiled egg on the Seder plate which represents the sacrificial offerings that were performed in the days of the Second Temple. But, moving past that, we turn to eggs throughout the whole holiday to give our food some fluff since we have no leavening in our diet for a week.
This Passover, I’m working with Davidson’s Safest Choice Eggs to share two holiday recipes.
I’ve talked about Safest Choice pasteurized eggs here before, focusing on how they are great for any recipes where the eggs aren’t cooked or are runny. You don’t run the risk of salmonella. But, you should also know that Safest Choice Eggs are great eggs overall. I use them for all kinds of baked goods (and to eat plain), just as I would any other egg. Then, if I make a game-time decision to let my guests taste my raw cookie dough or have a sunny-side up egg, I can do so without worrying.
And, bonus for you or your holiday guests who care, Safest Choice Eggs are Kosher.
