Chocolate Dipped Matzah with Sprinkles is one of my new favorite treats to make for Hanukkah. Beyond simple, these delicious crackers will come together in minutes and are sure to make anyone smile.
I’m always looking for new treats to make for my kids during the holidays. Hanukkah particularly is one of my favorite times to take traditional goodies and add a little spin to them. I didn’t grow up celebrating Hanukkah, so when I started observing the holiday with my husband, it was like a whole new beautiful world to me. There is something so calming and grounding, with the lighting of the menorah and reciting of the blessings. I cherish this time so deeply with my family and absolutely love passing on this tradition to my kids.
Though matzah is traditionally a Passover dish, we like to include it in our Hanukkah celebrations as well. The history and symbolism these crispy crackers represent is so special to the Jewish faith, I’m always looking for ways to include it in different dishes throughout the holiday.
For this recipe, I melted baking chocolate and then dipped the matzah crackers in it. While the chocolate was still warm, I got out my sprinkles and went to town. If you wait too long, the chocolate will harden and the sprinkles will have a hard time sticking, so it’s best to do it right away. It’s no secret that I love my dye-free sprinkles. For this recipe I used these blue and white sprinkles from Supernatural.
