trail-mix.jpgIn my quest this week to find tasty snacks that are “kosher” for Passover, I uncovered this fabulous recipe for Passover Trail Mix that actually tastes like something you could eat year round.

Can you believe this delicious looking crunchy, nutty and chewy trail mix is made with Matzoh?  What a treat!  My friend Dana from West Hartford, CT shared this recipe with me this weekend and I could not wait to rush home and try it. 

It was incredibly easy to make and took very little prep or baking time.    

Make sure you have a secure place to hide it from the family or it will be gone before you know it. 

Passover Trail Mix

1/2 box Matzoh Farfel (3 1/2 cups)

1 stick of butter or Passover margerine

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup water

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 cup nuts

1/2 cup raisins

3/4 cup chocolate chips

Preheat over to 350 degrees.  Line cookie sheet with tin foil.  Mix farfel, cinnamon and nuts.  Melt butter, add brown sugar and water.  Stir and cook for 2-3 minutes.  Pour butter mixture over dry ingredients and mix well. 

Spread  mixture onto foil-lined cookie sheet.  Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.  Add raisins for last 10 minutes.  Toss at least once or twice while baking. 

Cool thoroughly.  Add chocolate chips, mix well and enjoy. 

Note:  I used a mixture of walnuts, almonds and cashews.  Any nuts will do. 

I also used dried cranberries and golden raisins which added nice color to the mix.  Any dried fruit would be a nice and tasty addtition.

    just tried the passover trail mix and it was GREAT!!!! it also was easy and quick.

    it went over big with my 6 year old too—very hard for the kids to miss out on all their snacks so this was a great substitute for all his usual non-passover treats.

    thanks so much

    I made the trailmix yesterday and it came out great. I added dried cranberries, raisins and walnuts.My daughter grabbed some for her ultimate frisbee practice today. Its also a good passover cereal option if you leave out the chocolate chips.
