As adults, we find alternatives to “get through” the 8 days of Passover with salads, fresh produce, and of course a ton of matzo, egg and potato. (And who doesn’t love a great matzah pizza from Fresh Brothers?) If you need some “out of the box” ideas for Passover snacks, we’ve got you covered.
8 Passover Snacks Kids Love
When Passover rolls around, I forget about all the apple recipes we used to celebrate Rosh Hashanah. Bring them back out! Warm cinnamon apples made fresh at home are a delicious sweet treat that’s perfect for a kid-friendly Passover Snack. If you pick up some vanilla Passover Ice Cream, throw some of the cinnamon apples on top for a Hametz-free apple crisp.
Use your favorite granola recipe and substitute the oats for crumbled matzo and remove any kitniyot ingredients like sunflower seeds. A family favorite is crumbled matzo, mixed tree nuts, craisins, raw honey, olive oil and a dash of vanilla extract and sea salt. Mix it all up and lightly toast it in the oven at 300 degrees for about 10 minutes. Cool and enjoy this tasty and healthy Passover Snack.
Open Face Cucumber Sandwich – Matzo, Cream Cheese & Cucumbers
Using broken up pieces of Matzo or Tam Tams, add some cream cheese and sliced cucumber (add a bit of freshly ground black pepper on top for the adults) and you have yourself a quick and super easy snack. Also, try it with green apple instead of cucumber for a child-friendly Passover snack twist.
Crossing the Dead Sea – Celery, Cream Cheese & Craisins
Similar to ants on a log, using a thin layer of cream cheese in the celery you can stand your craisins up on their ends to make them look like the Israelites crossing the dead sea on “dry land.”
Cheddar Cheese Crisps
What kid (or adult) doesn’t love cheese crisps? These are beyond simple to make. All you need is some shredded cheddar cheese and and a greased cookie sheet. Sprinkle the cheese in small piles and bake 425 degrees for 6-10 minutes, but be sure to keep an eye on it to make sure it doesn’t burn. For an adult twist, sprinkle on some cayenne pepper to get an added kick!
Deviled eggs and hard boiled eggs are not usually on the list of Passover kid freindly snacks, but they are a great option and can be prepared in advance for kids to grab from the fridge for a quick nosh.
Matzo Trail Mix
This is the easiest Passover snack to throw in a bag and take on the run: chocolate chips, mini marshmallows, assorted tree nuts, craisins and/or raisins, and matzo farfel (or crumbled matzo).
Simple, fun to make, and tastes great! I only use cheese, salsa and black olives when I make this treat, but jalapenos, green onion and sour cream are other great toppings as well.
Happy Pesach! I hope this list of Passover Snacks Kids Love was helpful to you. What’s your favorite Passover snack?
