Chocolate Orange Matzah Florentines

There are three things that I really, really enjoy. Okay - there are more than three, however the three things I am talking about here today are chocolate, the Feast of Unleavened Bread and essential oils... but not necessarily in that exact order.

Chocolate: my new favorite version is what is known as skinny chocolate... that is if your THM-ing it.The Feast of Unleavened Bread: you can study about it the Scriptures and/or take a peek here.

And Essential Oils: well what can I say except that - Yes! I enjoy them. And Yes! at least some one in our home uses them daily... if not every one of us.

And this is what happens when they collide...

The Recipe: Chocolate Orange Matzah Florentines

1 Cup Coconut Oil
1 Cup Cocoa Powder
1/3 Cup Maple Syrup
1 T Vanilla
5 drops of Orange e.o. to start


What to do: Line your cookie sheet with parchment paper, lay out whole pieces of matzah to fill the cookie sheet. Then melt together your oil, cocoa and sweetener. Add the vanilla and your orange essential oil. Stir. Keep warmish while working the matzah. Next: Spread the chocolate mixture over the matzah and add variables if desired. Please in the freezer for five minutes. Flip and Repeat until the needed amount is reach. Break into bite sized pieces and store in freezer until ready to serve.

Essential Oil Note: you may add a couple more drops of orange to achieve the desired taste, but please remember that essential oils very strong and a little goes a looooong way.

The variables:
  • Sprinkle shredded coconut on top...
  • or crushed almonds!

So the next time you need a matzah dessert – give these a try!

~ Blessings!

*This recipe was originally inspired by a friend of mine in which she uses orange extract, and since I use some of my e.o's for cooking/baking as well I opted to travel this road. The results were Yummy and Flavorful!
