Chocolate Matzo Tiramisu #SpringSweetsWeek

You know what I love for holidays? Make ahead options.

Having a few things done the day before always makes the rest of the meal feel more manageable. This cake is a great make-ahead option to have waiting at the end of your holiday meal and -bonus!- it’s Passover-friendly.

Rich dark chocolate mousse is sandwiched between coffee-soaked matzo and topped with dark chocolate ganache in this easy, icebox version of tiramisu.

Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 cups dark chocolate chips
  • 2 cups heavy cream, divided
  • 1 cup warm coffee
  • 4 sheets matzo

The ingredients here are minimal. Since you taste each one, it’s best to use good quality options here. I splurged on a nice dark chocolate and used a flavored coffee from Door County Coffee. I used the Black and Tan roast for this and it was perfect, but they have a lot of options that would work beautifully.

Directions

  • Add the chocolate chips to a heat-proof bowl.
  • In a small saucepan, warm 1 1/4 cups of the heavy cream. When hot, but not boiling, pour over the chocolate chips and let sit for two minutes, then whisk until smooth. Measure out 1 cup and set aside.
  • With a stand mixer or a hand held mixer, beat the remaining heavy cream to soft peaks. Fold in remaining chocolate mixture.
  • Pour the warm coffee into a shallow baking dish.
  • Place 1 sheet of matzo into the coffee for 30 seconds then flip and soak for another 30 seconds.
  • Place the soaked matzo sheet on a serving dish. Top with 1/3 of the chocolate whipped cream.
  • Repeat for two more layers.
  • Soak the fourth matzo sheet and place on top.
  • Pour the reserved 1 cup of ganache over the top and smooth over evenly.
  • Refrigerate overnight.

Letting the cake sit in the fridge at least overnight is important because it lets the flavors of the cake meld together and the matzo sheets soften up. This isn’t a cake to rush! But, making it 2-3 days ahead is totally fine.
