Sticky Sephardic charoset, rich with nuts and dried fruit, is swathed in dark chocolate to make a delicious Passover-themed truffle.
Any chef will tell you that the secret to a great Passover dessert is not trying to make kosher-for-Passover versions of year-round cakes. Don’t even think about baking a loaf cake or pie that requires switching out cups of flour for loads of matzo meal or potato starch.
