For dessert and snacks, we love Caramel Matzo Buttercrunch, a buttery delight with chocolate and optional chopped nuts and fleur de sel. Even if you’re not Jewish or celebrating Passover, you should whip up a batch.

The Manishewitz Matzo Ball Mix is an easy shortcut with the dry ingredients pre-measured as a time saver. It makes matzo balls as good as Mom’s if you (a) add three eggs instead of two, (b) use schmaltz (rendered chicken fat) instead of vegetable oil and (c) refrigerate them for a day before serving (keep them apart from the soup).
But to make matzo balls as good as ours, you’ll also need to add a tablespoon of chopped parsley, dill or a combination of both, to the batter.
