Allergy Free Pesach

What is it about Pesach that makes people with egg and nut allergies get nutty? Let’s start with the Seder. You’ve got charoses which is full of nuts, hard boiled eggs-well…full of egg, and the traditional meal filled with matzoh balls-eggs, kugels-more eggs, and cakes and chocolates-lots of eggs and nuts. And that’s just the first night of the holiday!
 (excerpt from Jewish Press Article -2013 "Going Nuts - A Guide to An Allergy Friendly Pesach" by Tamar Warga)  

Don't go nuts this Pesach, go allergy free!
Check out our Passover tab full of resources to get you ready.

Nutfree/Dairyfree Bark

In our house, we call it "Shabbos Bark". I like to serve it with non-dairy ice-cream. You won't believe it's nutfree,pareve, and so simple to make.Put some in a bowl and watch them disappear.

Nutfree Bark
13 (rectangles)pareve graham crackers (honey or cinnamon)
1 stick non-dairy margarine
1/2 cup brown sugar
tiny pinch of salt
2  3oz bittersweet chocolate bars (like Elite) *can substitute for 1 bag of chocolate chips

yield- approx 2 dozen bark shards

Preheat oven to 375
Line a baking sheet/cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Place 12 graham cracker rectangles in a single layer. Fit them closely together in the pan without spaces.Melt margarine and brown sugar in a saucepan till bubbly. Add a scant pinch of salt.
Pour bubbly mixture all over graham crackers.Bake for 5 minutes at 375.Remove from oven.  Immediately, place bittersweet chocolate bars on top of hot graham crackers. Return to oven for 1 minute. Remove and quickly spread the chocolate all over the graham crackers.Crush 1 graham cracker and crumble over chocolate topping. Place in Freezer for 40 minutes.Remove from freezer.
