Passover Dessert Recipes

Chocolate Mousse Passover Cake

Picture this: a rich, brownie-like chocolate cake topped with chocolate mousse, whipped topping and garnished with even more chocolate. Sound divine? It is! Italian meringue gives the mousse a light, fluffy texture without the addition of gelatin. If you can include dairy in your dessert, substitute whipped cream for the nondairy whipped topping.

Fruit and Nut Truffles

Chewy, crunchy and rich, these truffles have it all. They're a beautiful treat passed around the table after dinner or laid out for nibbling during cocktail hour. If you don't want messy, chocolaty fingers, make sure your hands are cold, and work quickly when shaping the truffles.

Dairy-Free Chocolate Fondue

The best part about fondue is that your guests do most of the work — and kids love it. This recipe is versatile: It doubles easily to serve a larger crowd, but it also makes for lovely individual desserts served in espresso cups with a bit of fruit and matzo alongside.

Lemon Coconut Tart

A crisp almond-coconut crust filled with tangy lemon-coconut curd is a delightful way to end a big holiday meal. Coconut milk gives the lemon curd a rich flavour without requiring the addition of butter. If you are a lemon dessert lover, this tart is for you!

Date and Nut Torte With Toffee Sauce

This dense date and nut cake is a twist on British sticky toffee pudding, and it's topped with a luscious caramel sauce that is dead-simple to make. Matzo cake meal is Passover-friendly; look for it in the kosher section, near the matzo farfel.
