The unleavened cracker has never tasted this good.

Slathered with silky-smooth chocolate and sprinkled with sweet and salty toppings, a sheet of plain matzo can become a delicious Passover dessert. Follow this recipe through step three, then top the matzot with one of the variations below. Each combination makes enough for three sheets of matzot, and when broken into pieces, it will serve about eight people.

Using a small knife, cut the zest of an orange into very thin pieces. Top the matzot with a few strips of orange zest (or candied orange peel), 1/3 cup pomegranate seeds, and 1/4 cup mini white chocolate chips

Drizzle the matzot with 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons natural nut butter. If the nut butter is too thick to drizzle, stir in a bit of melted coconut oil. Top with 2 tablespoons toasted slivered almonds, 3 teaspoons honey, and a sprinkle of sea salt (such as Maldon).
