Chocolate Peanut Butter Matzo Squares

Passover dessert is not really known for being so great (think dry flour less cardboard), but these were awesome! Chocolate & Peanut Butter to me is always a winning combination 🙂 Not everyone eats peanuts/legumes during the holiday so you can always substitute Almond butter and I’m sure would be amazing too! Also to make this as a Non-Passover dessert you can use graham cracker meal or maybe even try coconut flour! mmmm ideas!

My dear friend Lisa posted these on her site and I’m so happy, and so was the rest of my family! YUM!!!!!

Chocolate Peanut But

Chocolate Peanut Butter Matzo Squares
recipe from lisasprojectvegan.com

1 1/4 cup organic natural peanut butter (room temperature)
4 tablespoons Earth Balance (1/2 stick, softened)
1 cup vegan powdered sugar
1 cup of matzo meal (approx 3 sheets processed)
1 cup vegan chocolate chips
coarse sea salt (optional)

Combine the peanut butter and Earth Balance.  Use a hand mixer and if it gets to tough, use your hands.  Work the powdered sugar in 1/2 a cup at a time.  When that is thoroughly combined, add the matzo meal and 1/2 cup of the chocolate chips.   Combine well.  Lightly grease a small square pan (mine is a 8×8 baking pan) and set the mixture in by really pressing it down firmly so it is even.   Melt together 1/4 cup of the peanut butter and the other 1/2 cup of the chocolate chips.  Pour it over the top of the crust and spread it out evenly.  If using sea salt, sprinkle on (I did so on half) Place in the refrigerator to set (at least an hour.)  Cut into squares and serve!  Enjoy!
