Matzah (Matzo) Puppy Chow

How were your Passover seders? Mine were fantastic! I went home to CT and had a lovely time with the fam. We cooked a lot of course- my brisket was especially tasty- and we all made sure to have our obligatory four glasses of wine. All in all a success! I will make sure to do a recap this week. Here is a quicky Passover snack that will convert even staunch matzah haters. Matzah Puppy Chow! It’s not the prettiest dish on the block, but it sure is addictive. Based on the ever popular crack Chex Puppy Chow. Here is all you need!

Make sure to use kosher for Passover confectioner’s sugar (it has potato starch instead of cornstarch). First up, put your chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter in a sauce pan and cook on low to medium heat until all melted and no lumps remain. Then add in the vanilla.

Yum. Now add your broken up matzah in and coat in the chocolate. After that, pour on the confectioner’s sugar and mix up until all your matzah is covered.

Spread on wax paper to cool. Then eat and enjoy!

Good luck with this lasting more than a day!

You will hardly miss the bread! If you are not eating peanuts for Passover, simply use almond butter instead!

  1. Oh, dear. This is dangerous!!

  2. sharon gates says:

    as far as I know, peanut butter is NOT KFP

  3. You’ve done it again princess! Can’t wait for the Seder recap – hope we don’t embarrass ourselves!

    Bubs

  4. Yum!! I can’t make this until I have a big group or I’ll eat it all!

  5. Hi Amy! I won the Manischewitz give-away and received my package of food a couple of weeks ago. I used the matzah to make this puppy chow and it is fantastic! Thanks for being so awesome and Happy Hanukkah!

  6. How long does this stay…is it too early to make it now?

  7. Me again….sorry…is there a such thing as kosher for passover confectioners sugar?

  8. I made the Matzah Puppy Chow – FABULOUS. I used sugar frees chocolate chips to cut the sugar. Still fabulous. Next time I may lay out whole matzah, spread the melted chocolate mixture on top and sprinkle with chopped nuts and break up like brittle. Yummy chocoalte either way.

  9. OMG!!!!! Just made it and cannot stop picking at it!!! DELICIOUS!!!!! When you added the matzo to the chocolate mixture did you do it on the stove or pour the chocolate over the matzah? I poured mine and I did find the chocolate was a little hard to distribute evenly.

  10. I just made this, and it’s delicious. I suspect my young niece and nephew will love “cocoa matzah” tomorrow night.

    I ended up having to use more nut butter (I used sunflower butter because of family allergies), chocolate, and confectioner’s sugar. Not sure why. But the end result is wonderful.

  11. Also good with sunflower seed butter for those with nut allergies!

  12. CAUTION!! Chocolate is toxic to dogs. If you need to replace chocolate you can use carob chips.

  13. We are talking dog food here, correct? Oops…guess not.
