Matzah Chocolate Balls

These are matzah chocolate balls, not chocolate matzah balls! We wouldn't go that far...

Passover chocolate balls
  • Duration
  • Prep Time
  • 30Servings


  • ¼ cup butter
  • 8 squares dark chocolate (8 oz.)
  • 4 tablespoons white sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • ½ cup milk
  • 3-5 sheets of matzah- depends how crumbly you break it up. So start with 3 and add more if not thick enough
  • Shredded coconut


  1. Melt butter and chocolate together. Mix well. Pour into large bowl. Add cocoa powder, sugar and milk. Mix well. Make sure there are no cocoa powder chunks.
  2. Smash matzah as small as you can (you can use a rolling pin to help). Add into mixture.
  3. Shape into small balls and roll in shredded coconut. Children are especially good at this time-consuming step!
  4. Fridge for a couple hours or until chilled. Happy Passover!
