    My Private Note




    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 (10 ounce) box unsalted matzo crackers
    • 1 cup unsalted butter or 1 cup unsalted passover margarine
    • 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
    • 3/4 cup coarsely chopped semisweet chocolate or 3/4 cup chocolate chips


    1. 1
      Cover two rimmed baking sheets completely with foil.
    2. 2
      Cut a piece of parchment paper to fit the bottom of each pan and place it on top of the foil.
    3. 3
      Line the bottom of each cookie sheet evenly with the matzo, breaking extra pieces, as required, to fit any spaces.
    4. 4
      In a 3-quart, heavy-bottomed saucepan, combine butter and brown sugar.
    5. 5
      Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture comes to a boil (about 2 to 4 minutes).
    6. 6
      Boil for 3 minutes (use a timer; this is important), stirring constantly.
    7. 7
      Remove from heat and pour over the matzo, covering completely.
    8. 8
      Place the baking sheets in a preheated 375-degree oven and immediately reduce the heat to 350 degrees.
    9. 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. 10
      Remove pans from oven and sprinkle immediately with the chopped chocolate or chips.
    11. 11
      Let stand five minutes, then spread the melted chocolate over the matzo with an offset spatula or knife.
    12. 12
      While still warm, break into squares or odd shapes.
    13. 13
      Place pans in freezer to chill until set.
    14. 14
      Remove and store in airtight container for up to a week.

      Over some of the matzah's I used Nestles milk chocolate and peanut butter chips. They were super! Will make again next year.

      This was so easy to make and tasty. No worry about saving it for a week as it was too addictive to hang around that long. It was almost all gone within days. I know this will be made next Passover. The directions were very easy to follow and the heads up about cooking too long is appreciated. I used jellyroll pans and maybe could have used a bit more of the caramel mixture but did just fine with what I had. I used a pizza cutter to cut it into pieces while still warm. It was a lot easier than doing it by hand and a lot less messy.

      This was very simple to make and SO tasty. And not just tasty by Passover food standards, but actually delicious. Am planning to make several batches and bring some as a hostess gift for a dinner we are attending.
