Adj. 1. parve – containing no meat or milk (or their derivatives) and thus eatable with both meat and dairy dishes according to the dietary laws of Judaism; “pareve margarine”; “parvebread”

Pesach, Pesach, Pesach. I am so not prepared. I have been so crazy about sticking to my HCG diet, I forgot about Passover along the way. It’s not a problem really, because I will start Phase 3 (Maintenance) about 4 days before the big holiday. My only concern: we are COMMANDED to eat Matzo everyday for 8 days. I guess a bite or two wouldn’t hurt. Ugh.

Anyway, I was invited over to a friend’s house for the 1st night. What to bring??? That G-d this particular host is diabetic, so I won’t offend by bringing something over that’s sugarless. Made my tester last night. Completely kosher for Passover, flourless, no kitniyot, sugarless, and parve. I know this seems like a marvel that must have been made in a laboratory, but no… made in my kitchen with all-natural ingredients. Here’s the recipe!


  • 12 ounces dairy-free dark chocolate
  • 1 cup dairy-free, kasher l’pesach margarine
  • 20 packets of Truvia (stevia)
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3/4 cups dairy-free, unsweetened almond milk


1. Preheat the oven to 350 F. Lightly oil a 10″ springform pan and dust the bottom and the sides with cocoa powder. Set aside.

2. In a double boiler or a stainless steel bowl set over simmering water, melt the dairy-free dark chocolate.

3. Meanwhile, in a large bowl using an electric hand mixer, beat the dairy-free kasher l’pesach margarine until creamy. Add the Truvia (Stevia) and beat for 3-4 minutes, or until fluffy. Add in the eggs, one at a time, beating until well combined. Add the melted dairy-free chocolate and beat until creamy. Add the cocoa powder and unsweetened almond milk, beating until combined. Spread in the prepared pan and bake until the top cracks and a toothpick inserted into the center emerges clean, about 35-45 minutes. Allow the cake to cool completely on a wire cooling rack.

It’s super rich, almost like a cheese cake, so I’m going to serve this with coconut milk whipped cream. I’ll let you know how that goes later.

In the meantime, did you see my cake stand in the background? It’s a 6-in-1 cake stand from Bed Bath and Beyond. I bought it for a bride-to-be, because it was my favorite thing on her registry. I loved it so much I bought one for myself too!

It’s an ordinary cake stand with lid.

An elevated cake stand without lid.

An hor d’vours serving platter.

And (best of all) a margarita bowl.

Who doesn’t love that?!?! And only $19.99. You’re welcome!
