Ingredients

Nutrition
  • 1 (10 ounce) box unsalted matzo crackers
  • 1 cup unsalted butter or 1 cup unsalted passover margarine
  • 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 34 cup coarsely chopped semisweet chocolate or 34 cup chocolate chips

Directions

  1. Cover two rimmed baking sheets completely with foil.
  2. Cut a piece of parchment paper to fit the bottom of each pan and place it on top of the foil.
  3. Line the bottom of each cookie sheet evenly with the matzo, breaking extra pieces, as required, to fit any spaces.
  4. In a 3-quart, heavy-bottomed saucepan, combine butter and brown sugar.
  5. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture comes to a boil (about 2 to 4 minutes).
  6. Boil for 3 minutes (use a timer; this is important), stirring constantly.
  7. Remove from heat and pour over the matzo, covering completely.
  8. Place the baking sheets in a preheated 375-degree oven and immediately reduce the heat to 350 degrees.
  9. Bake for 15 minutes, checking every few minutes to make sure the mixture is not burning (if it seems to be browning too quickly, remove the pan from the oven, lower the heat to 325 degrees and replace the pan).
  10. Remove pans from oven and sprinkle immediately with the chopped chocolate or chips.
  11. Let stand five minutes, then spread the melted chocolate over the matzo with an offset spatula or knife.
  12. While still warm, break into squares or odd shapes.
  13. Place pans in freezer to chill until set.
  14. Remove and store in airtight container for up to a week.
