Revel in chocolate desserts resonating with Passover themes

By Deborah R. Prinz

(JTA) — Toss the potato starch and matzah meal — serve delectable desserts this Passover made from chocolate.

These desserts, especially if using fair trade or organic chocolate, further awareness of the themes of Passover. They remind us of the great poverty of many cacao farmers and of the children tragically enslaved in Ghana and the Ivory Coast.
