Mallomars are kosher for Passover when you make them from scratch with matzo!
Matzomars. As in Matzo Mallomars. Yup. That’s right. Well....almost! I was thinking how amazing two small squares of matzo would be sandwiched with marshmallow “Fluff,” dipped in chocolate and sprinkled with confetti. I ran to the cupboard, searched for my tub of Fluff, and then remembered that I had rid of it two months ago while straightening up the pantry. Fear not! I checked the fridge and sure enough I had some homemade chocolate buttercream in a container, so I forged ahead and made these fudge-stuffed cookie sandwiches as a proxy. But a kosher-for-Passover Mallomar is within reach...as long as you have the Fluff!
Equipment: cutting board, small serrated knife; rimmed sheet pan; wax paper; offset spatula; small mixing bowl; fork
4 matzo squares or a box of matzo crackers, such as Tam Tams
1 cup of marshmallow Fluff, or Jumbo mallows, or 1 cup of frosting
3 cups semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips or melting wafers
sprinkles or edible confetti for decorating.
1. Line a sheet pan with wax paper and set aside.
2. Carefully saw each matzo square into 4 equal strips. Gently saw back and forth without breaking the matzo to create a score that you then can gently snap/break. Repeat the same technique on each strip, divided into four equal squares. Or use matzo crackers or Tam Tams and skip this step!
It's all about technique, not torture! It's all about making a Mallomar you can eat during Passover. So make it work for you!
3. Spread a dollop of Fluff, 1/3 slice of Jumbo mallow, or dollop of frosting on a small matzo square or cracker. Top with another small matzo square or cracker. Repeat until all of the "cookie sandwiches" are assembled.
4. Melt the chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl. Stir with a fork until smooth.
5. Using the fork, gently dip each matzo cookie sandwich in the chocolate to cover. Carefully lift the dipped sandwich from the chocolate and place on the wax paper-lined sheet pan. Repeat until all are dipped. Decorate with sprinkles, etc.
6. Place the sheet pan in the refrigerator for 20 minutes, or until the chocolate has set. Serve cold or room temperature. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to one week.
Makes two dozen Matzomars.
