Easy Chocolate Squares


Just because something’s very easy to prepare, does not detract from the fact that it still can be delicious. If you want to start your kids or grandkids cooking with chocolate, this is a great beginning!

Easy Chocolate Squares

NoBakChocSqa

Yields: 16 squares

Ingredients

  • 9 1/2 oz dark chocolate
  • 3/4 cup margarine
  • 4 tbsp light corn syrup
  • 2 tbsp coconut flavored liqueur
  • 6 oz plain cookies
  • 1/3 cup toasted rice cereal (non-toasted rice cereal will do well in a pinch)
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecan nuts
  • 1/2 cup candied cherries, roughly chopped
  • 1 oz white chocolate, to decorate

Directions

  1. Place the dark chocolate in a double boiler with the margarine, syrup, and coconut liqueur over gently simmering water until melted, stirring continuously until blended.
  2. Break the cookies into small pieces and stir into the chocolate mixture, stir in the rice cereal, nuts and cherries.
  3. Line a 7″ inch square cookie pan with parchment paper. Pour the mixture into the pan and level the top, pressing down well with the back of a spoon. Chill in the refrigerator for about 2 hours.
  4. Melt the white chocolate and drizzle over the top of the cake in a random pattern. Let it set.
  5. Carefully take out of the pan and discard the parchment paper. Cut up into 16 squares.

Enjoy!

Matzel Toff – Dark Chocolate with Sea Salt


Just when I thought nothing could top the taste of Matzel Toff‘s Milk Chocolate covered matzah, I found out how grievously wrong I was. Matzel Toff‘s Dark Chocolate With Salt covered matzah is even better yet! Sea salt and chocolate?!?!? Sounds strange, right?  Try it, you’ll love it.

I just came across this delicacy and couldn’t wait to taste it.

Matzel Toff's Dark Chocolate with Sea Salt

I wasn’t disappointed, an amalgam of contrasting and complimenting flavors, this was a great exotic treat. Covered with toffee (which immediately sets this bar miles ahead of other plain chocolate covered matzah), followed by a thick layer of dark chocolate sprinkled with sea salt, it combines the complex mineral taste of sea salt with dark chocolate (less sweet than its full milk sibling) and a rich toffee that gives it that extra crunch.

This is truly a gourmet treat. Like the last bars we tried, this one also barely lasted a few minutes. Neither SYR nor I could resist it! Phillip Guttman and Abigail Levy, Matzel Toff‘s owners/partners, have done it again!

We’ve received quite a few inquiries as to where it’s available, having contacted the company I was assured that their products will be available at a number of places in the five boroughs and in various states in March, with various products being introduced specifically for Pesach. Meanwhile, starting in March also, you may order from their current stock or pre-order the Passover products at their website.

Enjoy, gentle reader, enjoy!
