This candy is positively addictive. It will disappear right before your eyes. The photos of the candy with the nuts were made with white sugar. The photos of the candy with the sprinkles were made with brown sugar which tastes a bit caramelized and (I think) a bit sweeter. Both delicious.

Really a very good recipe. I only needed to use three matzah boards rather than the six called for in the recipe in order to fully line my cookie sheet.

Holy good matzah candy, Batman! This is SOOO awesome. I made this as one of the desserts to bring to my mom's tomorrow, and my family will be lucky if there is any left to arrive with me! I'm just kidding....this recipe makes a TON. So, here is what I did: I used mini chocolate chips, brown sugar, and I also added 1/4 teaspoon of salt to the brown sugar and butter mixture, all on the suggestions of other reviewers. Since the recipe directions don't specify, I *simmered* the brown sugar and butter on medium-low heat for about 5 minutes, until it was a caramel color and bubbly (I have never caramelized anything on the stove before this, so I wanted to pass that on). I also used a "custom mix" (that means I shook it around in a tupperware) of finely chopped pecans and almonds, instead of walnuts. When I was done making the candy, I popped it in the freezer for about 15 minutes, and then it was easy to break apart. I forgot to grease the foil (probably because I was SO excited to make this), but it was still not bad to carefully lift off. Greasing would be good, though. I was going to try Skor bits, but I'm glad I didn't, because those would have been TOO sweet, and this is a sweet treat! Thanks SO much for posting this - I get tired of ginormous matzah PB&J's. :)

oh what a mess! I halved the recipe and what I had ended up looked nothing like that picture over there, I've got a whole bunch of pieces of half carmilized/half burnt pieces of matza where the chocolate wouldn't spread. Total disaster. The only reason it gets 2 stars is because I still ate it and I assume it would be good if only I can figure out what I did wrong. :(
