Passover is coming up in a few weeks and almost all the stores are stocked with their passover foods.  I feel most store raise their prices on nearly everything especially their chocolates.  Bartons candies are a fortune!  So Im trying to think of ways that I can make my own.

Some of my ideas are as follows.  Melt chocolate in a bowl.  Any kind of chocolate (kosher for passover), the cheaper (real) chocolate the better, either choc. chips or a baking bar, milk choc, whatever.  throw in a ton of raisins, almonds, nuts of any kind. If the choco. is too thick, add a drop of marg. Mix melted choc. fruit/nuts and then scoop them out to drip off access chocolate.  lay them flat on parchment paper to dry.  Now youve got yourself some chocolaty snacks much cheaper then the stores sell.   You could also do this with broken pieces of matza instead of fruit or nuts.

Another idea is making homemade chocolate lolipops.  They sell like 5 choc. pops for like $5 which is CRAZY. This project could even be done by the kids with adult help Buy any shape candy mold, which you can buy at craft stores for very inexpensive (especially if you use an in store coupon from places like Michaels). Dont forget to buy the lolipop sticks too. Melt any kind of chocolate- dark/milk, whatever you prefer.  Add a drop of marg. if you think its too thick.  Pour into candy/pop molds (greasing the molds with Kosher for Passover oil spray before may be necessary) and let harden for about 30 minutes or put in the fridge for about 15 minutes.  You can make many many more pops for much cheaper than they cost.  And as we all know, kids could eat a whole box very easily so this is a great and inexpensive.

Marshmellows are another great treat on Passover.  Eat them plain or roast them over a fire.  YUM!

Im still looking into other ideas for making homemade treats KLP.  Will keep you posted!
