    Ok girls…here is a sweet and fun dessert that the kids can also make, and not make a mess:

    Put a piece of chocolate covered matzo on a plate;
    Next put a thin slice of your favorite Passover cake (chocolate, red velvet, whatever) on top of the matzo;
    Scoop on some fresh or dried fruit;
    Top with fresh home-made whipped cream;
    Drizzle Passover chocolate syrup across the whipped cream to make it look pretty;
    Crush up some macaroons and sprinkle on top.
    Eat and enjoy !!!!!
