What is Gluten Free Matzo Bark?

Gluten-free matzo bark, also known as matzo crack, is a dessert or snack made by layering pieces of gluten-free matzo, the gluten-free version of an unleavened flatbread, with chocolate or other sweet toppings. The matzo is first broken into small pieces and then arranged in a single layer on a baking sheet or other flat surface.

It is often enjoyed during the Jewish holiday of Passover but can also be enjoyed year-round as long as you can often find gluten free matzo in stores.

Why we love this fun Passover recipe:

  1. This simple gluten free matzo bark is easy to make in just minutes.
  2. You can have fun decorating it any way you like!
  3. Making chocolate matzo is a great family tradition!
  4. It is very easy to make this recipe dairy-free!
  5. Gluten-free matzo is pretty tasty, even more so when it comes to chocolate!

Ingredient Notes:

For the full list of ingredients and amounts, please go to the recipe card below.

  • Gluten free matzo – Two companies make gluten free matzo. Manischewitz and Yehuda. I have only found Yehuda in our local stores, so that is the one I used. You can also make my homemade Gluten Free Matzo recipe!
  • Chocolate – The sky’s the limit; use any chocolate or candy-melting wafers to make this recipe. Ghirardelli makes really good chocolate, melting vanilla, milk, and dark chocolate wafers. (Note that Wilton and other melting wafers are made on shared equipment, so you would need to find ones that are fully gluten free!) If you are dairy-free, use the Enjoy Life brand.
  • Sprinkles – Use your favorite sprinkles. Check my gluten free sprinkles list to be sure the sprinkles you use are gluten free!

Step-By-Step Photos and Directions:

Step 1: Line a baking dish or tray with wax paper. Line the gluten free matzo up on the wax paper. You can use whole sheets of matzo or broken pieces of matzo.

👀 Sandi Says: The wax paper is important so the chocolate doesn’t stick to a pan. This is the best way to ensure an easy cleanup.

Step 2: Add the chocolate wafers or chips to a microwave-safe dish. Melt the chocolate in the microwave, starting at 30 seconds. Stir the chocolate. Cook another 15 seconds and stir.

For best results, the chocolate should be fully melted. If it isn’t fully melted, microwave an additional 10 seconds. Be careful not to burn your chocolate by cooking it too long.

HINT: If you prefer to melt the chocolate on the stovetop, you can also use a double broiler.

Step 4: Drizzle the melted chocolate over the matzo pieces. Sprinkle on the sprinkles while the chocolate is still warm and soft. You can make the layer of chocolate as thick as you like!

You can also layer different chocolate flavors like white chocolate and dark chocolate!

Step 5: Refrigerate the tray of chocolate-coated matzo for 45 minutes. Break apart the matzo bark into pieces, and enjoy!
