10 Passover Desserts

By • April 4, 2012 • 3 Comments

The world of Passover desserts can look grim. Dreary. Chalky. Cookies, hard as rocks; brownies, mouthfuls of starch. But dessert can still be good -- great, really -- without leavening (and without flour!). Here are 10 desserts that just happen to be Passover-friendly, and naturally gluten-free to boot -- just two of the many reasons to munch on them (or spoon them up) all week long.

All look luscious, but only the Pine Nut Brittle, macaroons and Chocolate Bark would be kosher, unless served after a meatless meal. A bowl of chicken soup with matzoh balls, brisket....followed by gelato? Not so much.

Thanks amysarah -- you bring up a great point. Both rhubarb recipes and the chocolate mousse (assuming you use dark chocolate without added milk, as we did) are also dairy-free, if you skip our garnishes. We just can't seem to help ourselves with those creamy garnishes, but they're entirely unnecessary. Note too that the brittle calls for butter -- so don't plan on that one, if you intend to have a kosher meal with meat.
