No kid will be able to pass over this simple Passover treat. Macaroon fans will love the coconut-almond recipe; for a sweet-tart variation, swap in some dried fruit.
Dried Fruit Haystacks: Follow the recipe above but reduce the amount of chocolate chips to 2 cups and substitute 1 cup of dried fruit for the coconut and almonds. We used a mix of chopped apricots and sweetened cranberries.
Coconut-Almond Haystacks: Melt the chocolate chips according to the directions on the package, and stir until smooth.
Combine the crushed matzos, the coconut, and the almonds in a large mixing bowl. Pour the melted chocolate over the dry mixture and stir until all of the pieces are coated.
Use a teaspoon to dollop haystacks onto a sheet of parchment or waxed paper, or into paper muffin cups. Allow the treats to cool (about 10 minutes). Makes about 60 pieces.
