Chocolate Moses, Macaroons, Mini Truffles and More Passover Sweets

One of the Passover-themed offerings from Mouth.

Wasn’t it just Purim? Well, it’s time to start thinking about Passover goodies.

At Mouth, the hipster-approved mail-order food operation, Passover items include whimsical gift boxes like Parting of the Sea Salt ($70), a collection of indie sea salts like herb salt from Amangansett Sea Salt and Citrus Salt from Farmer Freed. From Roni-Sue Chocolates, Mouth offers a new charoset-inspired matzo ($11) made with caramelized apple-toffee crunch and walnuts. And a miniature “Chocolate Moses” ($90) from Bond Street Chocolate “makes for a memorable and delicious table centerpiece”, Mouth claims. We’ll take its word for it.

Chocolate-covered macaroons from William Greenberg.

In New York, William Greenberg Desserts is offering its annual array of irresistible kosher-for-Passover treats — think apple-macaroon cake, a splendidly trad honey cake, macaroons and sponge cake.

If you’re not near the Madison Avenue shop, they’ll ship overnight.

Flourless chocolate cake truffles from Mini Melanie.

There’s nothing small about the success of Mini Melanie, the year-old bakery owned by Melanie Moss, formerly the pastry chef at the Blue Hill Café at Blue Hill at Stone Barns. Her fledgling bakery was included in the 2016 New York City Michelin Guide. This week, the operation moves from its original digs in the Hot Bread Kitchen incubator in Harlem down to the Lower East Side, out of Hill & Dale gastropub. For Passover, Mini Melanie is offering flourless chocolate cake truffles.
