During Passover, I always find myself eating more dessert than usual. While often the food is less exciting (except at Seders, of course, because my mom is an amazing cook), the desserts are always good. Honestly, I fell in love with those Manischewitz boxed cakes when I was in college. I liked them so much, I would eat them even after Passover had ended. And they were small enough that I would always eat them in 1-2 sittings! But my absolute favorite Passover dessert has always been my mom’s chocolate chip meringue cookies. I always eat so many of them. I just can’t bring myself to stop. They are so good. But now I have for you a cake that will give those cookies a run for their money.

We bought some string lights during our holiday decoration shopping to hang on our exposed brick wall and we’ve decided to leave them up all year for the ambiance! I’ve also always been a candle person, but he’s way more into burning them now. We’re only two weeks in, but I’m loving it!
