“You don’t have to be Jewish to love Levy’s Real Jewish Rye,” was the tagline of an advertisement that became a case study in brilliant marketing. And it’s the line that came to mind the first time I served these no-bake morsels. I made them for a friend for Passover, the Jewish holiday during which nothing leavened is eaten and cracker-like matzo stands in for the daily loaf. Now I make them all year long, just because they’re great.
Nothing more than crumbled matzo, dried fruit—I like raisins or cranberries here—and chocolate chips bound together with melted chocolate and butter, the morsels are crunchy and chewy, a bit salty, a lot chocolatey and the kind of simple sweet that could become one of the things you find yourself craving often.
