Oh So Yummy Chocolate Seder
Sunday in Adra’s fifth grade class we celebrated Passover — chocolate style! We held a chocolate seder, where every traditional symbol on the seder plate was replaced with a chocolate symbol.
We had chocolate licorice as the zeroa (shank bone), a chocolate egg as the beitzah (egg), green M&Ms as the karpas (parsley), and bittersweet chocolate as the maror (bitter herb). Instead of regular matzah we had chocolate covered matzah. We drank four cups of chocolate milk (more like four big slips from one cup) to represent the four cups of wine. Instead of dipping parsley in salt water, we dipped strawberries in chocolate sauce (the strawberries represents spring just as the parsley does). Lastly, for the traditional Hillel sandwich of matzah, maror, and charoset; we made a S’mores Hillel sandwich with matzah, marshmallows, and chocolate.
Our class had so much fun at our chocolate seder that we are all ready for the actual Passover seder next week!
