Servings 12


  • 12 matzo balls about 1 to 1 1/2 inches in diameter each
  • 1/2 cup sugar plus extra for sprinkling
  • 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
  • Yogurt Sauce:
  • 1 5-6 oz yogurt I used Stonyfield
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • Pinch of salt
  • Chocolate shavings for garnish


  • Dry the matzo balls and refrigerate overnight. The next day, preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Combine cinnamon and sugar in a medium bowl and roll matzo balls in the mixture, coating completely. If the mixture is not sticking well, wet matzo balls a bit.
  • Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and put matzo balls on the paper. Bake for 15 minutes or until crispy.
  • While the matzo balls are baking, combine yogurt sauce ingredients. Serve matzo balls hot with dipping sauce!
