It’s no secret, I have a sweet tooth. At Etsy, I’m known for my well-stocked candy or cookie stash. Need a sugar fix? Just find me! But what about Passover?

Passover is the Jewish holiday commemorating our ancestors’ flight from Egypt. We had to leave in such a hurry, that our bread didn’t even have time to rise. To remember this time, traditionally, many Jews do not eat leavened bread during Passover. For around eight days, we trade our fluffy bread, bagels, and rolls for flat, crispy, and delicious matzah. But what about my sweets?!

Growing up, my mother knew about my sugar obsession and she always had me covered, even during Passover. Every year my mother makes amazing macaroons, meringue cookies, and my favorite, chocolate covered matzah. Check out these scrumptious Passover-friendly dessert recipes on the Smitten Kitchen blog.

Let’s drool over our favorite Passover desserts in the comments below! Happy Passover, Etsy friends!
