Prepared to have your mind blown.

Caramel Praline Matzoh? What could be better!?  Turning it into an ice cream sandwich.

Yes. You heard that right.





Gourmet ice cream sandwiches have been an obsession of mine for about 4 years now. I thought of starting a business, but it was too cumbersome. So my dear readers and friends, on this blessed celebration of Passover and Easter, I give you a celestial dessert. It reminds us that we were brought out of slavery and fast forwards to all of that milk and honey. Yay for milk and honey. So here's what to do:

2 cups Soft Ball Caramel
1/2 cup creamy nut butter (Peanut, Almond, Hazelnut, Cashew, whatever you've got)
1/2 cup nuts, crushed
Bananas
Vanilla Ice Cream in square carton
8 pieces Matzoh
Sea salt (optional)
Parchment paper

Make caramel. I am in love with my recipe. I also thought honey caramel might be really fun. While it bubbles, spread two sheets of parchment paper out: One onto large cookie sheet and the other on a table.

A note on parchment paper: I used to think it was only for Martha Stewart types and now it is my best kitchen friend. It has changed my cooking world.

Back to the recipe .... Place 4 matzoh in pan and four on paper on table. When caramel reaches soft-ball stage, drizzle 1 cup over over matzoh. Add peanut butter to remaining cup of caramel. If it's think enough, drizzle on top of matzoh. Otherwise, use a sandwich bag with the tip cut of and pipe onto matzoh. Sprinkle with crushed or chopped nuts.

You can stop here. These are delicious on their own and keep well. They won't melt, so if you're going to a Seder across town or in another city, this is the way to go.

But ... ... ...


Such glamorous mazoh! People will think you are so gourmet because you are. But you will have lingering guilt for not continuing to the next step because you KNOW it is the most delicious. 


If you want your mind blown, continue to the next step.

Make sure matzoh in pan is touching edges. Slice ice cream into 1 inch slabs and place on top of matzoh in pan. Cover the ice cream with sliced bananas. Place other matzoh on top and press down with parchment paper. Freeze in a cold part of the freezer overnight. Slice before serving with a sharp knife. Happy Pesach!




Suddenly, you'll want to be kosher for Passover ALL OF THE TIME! Just as long so these are served at every meal.

  2. How you make something as unappealing as matzo so utterly appealing, I'll never understand.
