2. Nutty Brownies: To give your Passover Brownies a nutty twist, sprinkle some raisins or currants on top before baking or mix in some chopped walnuts or almonds into the batter for added crunch and flavor.

3. Fruit-Infused Brownies: For a fruity touch in your Passover Brownies, add diced dried apricots or cranberries into the batter along with some ground cinnamon for spiced flavor.

Making a batch of these Passover brownies is definitely a great idea, as you never know when you’ll need a sweet and decadent snack. Luckily, they can be made ahead of time and stored for later enjoyment.

To make ahead, simply bake the brownies as per the recipe instructions, let them cool down completely, and then cover them tightly with plastic wrap or aluminum foil. You can store them at room temperature for up to 3 days, or in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. Just keep in mind that they might lose some of their fudginess if refrigerated, so you may want to take them out of the fridge a couple of hours before serving to let them come back to room temperature.

If you want to store them for longer than that, you can freeze them by wrapping them well in plastic wrap and then placing them in a freezer-safe container or zip-top bag. They will keep well in the freezer for up to 3 months.

To reheat your brownies, take them out of the fridge or freezer and let them come back to room temperature first. Then, you can either microwave them for a couple of seconds (be careful not to overdo it or they might become hard), or warm them up in a low-temperature oven for 5-10 minutes.

Just always remember that these Passover brownies are at their best when served fresh and gooey straight from the oven. That being said, they are still delicious even after they’ve been stored and reheated.

Tips for Perfect Results

There are several tips that have helped me get the perfect Passover brownies every time. Here are a few things to keep in mind when making this recipe:

1. Use high-quality ingredients: Since Passover desserts are limited, using quality ingredients can make all the difference in terms of flavor and texture. Use fresh eggs, unsweetened cocoa powder, and good-quality chocolate chips.

2. Achieve the right texture: Passover desserts can be particularly tricky because traditional flours cannot be used. I recommend using a combination of potato starch and matzo cake meal as replacements. The potato starch helps add structure to the brownies, while the matzo cake meal adds some density.

3. Beat the eggs well: Whisking eggs until they are foamy is key to getting a perfect batter for your Passover brownies. Be sure to beat them in a large mixer bowl until they double in volume and turn pale yellow.

4. Add ingredients slowly: When adding ingredients like cocoa powder or potato starch, it’s important to do so slowly and in small increments while mixing, so that you don’t end up with clumps in your batter.

5. Watch the bake time: These brownies should be fudgy and slightly underdone, rather than dry or overcooked. Watch them carefully while baking- aiming for 25-30 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean with only a few moist crumbs attached.

With these tips in mind, I am confident that you will yield the gooiest-ever passover brownies that your family will love!


Before we wrap up this passover brownies recipe, I wanted to address a few commonly asked questions that have come up regarding the ingredients and steps of this recipe. Don’t worry, I’ve got you covered with everything you need to know to make these brownies turn out perfectly, no matter what challenges might come your way. So let’s dive into these FAQs and get ready to bake up some of the best brownies ever!

What are the three types of brownies?

When it comes to brownies, there are different textures that you can achieve. These textures are usually categorized into three types: cakey, fudgy, and chewy. Cakey brownies are fluffy, light, and moist, almost resembling a cake. On the other hand, fudgy brownies are dense, moist, and with a gooey texture, that is reminiscent of fudge. Finally, chewy brownies offer the best of both worlds, with a crispy exterior and a chewy, moist interior.

What is the secret to moist brownies?

For a twist on your regular brownie recipe, consider swapping out water for milk. By using milk instead, you can add extra richness and flavor thanks to the increased fat content. This results in brownies that are even more moist, gooey, and downright delectable. So why not give it a try and take your brownies to the next level?

What are Katherine Hepburn brownies?

This recipe I have for you is a beloved American classic that can be whipped up with common pantry ingredients. You’ll end up with chewy, fudgy, and intense brownies that are dark and rich in flavor. These brownies are definitely a crowd-pleaser and one of our top chocolate desserts. So let’s get started with the original recipe.

Why are boxed brownies so much better?

When comparing a homemade brownie recipe to a store-bought version, there are some slight ingredient differences. Both recipes contain flour, sugar, and eggs, but the store-bought version uses vegetable oil instead of butter and cocoa powder instead of bar chocolate. This results in a brownie with less saturated fat. The changes in ingredients may affect the overall taste and texture of the brownie.

Bottom Line

In conclusion, this Passover Brownies recipe is a perfect addition to your holiday menu. With its rich chocolate flavor and fudgy texture, these brownies will leave your guests wanting more. Plus, with the variety of substitutions and variations available, you can easily customize the recipe to meet your preferences.

Need a chocolate fix during the holidays? Though I'm not Jewish, this recipe looked intriguing to me so I'm saving it as a gift the next time I'm invited to a Seder. (Yes, in my kitchen it would not be Kosher, but my friends are not that religious.) The combination of fruits --raisins, bananas and applesauce -- should give these a very moist brownie like texture.
