Recipe by Nancy Fox
READY IN: 35mins
YIELD: 24 bars


  • 14
    cup reduced-fat butter
  • 4
    matzos, unsalted
  • 1
    cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 34
    cup cranberries, dried
  • 12
    cup walnuts, chopped
  • 12
    cup coconut, flaked
  • 1
    (14 ounce) can fat-free sweetened condensed milk


  • 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • 2. Break the matzo into pieces and place in a blender. Cover and blend on high to make crumbs or start with 1¼ cup matzo meal.
  • 3. In a 13 x 9 baking pan, generously coat with cooking spray. Add the Smart Balance and place in the oven to melt. This will take about a minute. Remove from oven.
  • 4. Sprinkle the matzo crumbs evenly over the top of the Smart Balance. Do not mix.
  • 5. Sprinkle the chocolate chips evenly over the top.
  • 6. Next, sprinkle the cranberries and then the walnuts. Finally sprinkle the coconut evenly over the top.
  • 7. Drizzle the sweetened condensed milk evenly over the chips. To make the milk easier to drizzle, place the can in a bowl of hot water for a few minutes.
  • 8. Bake for about 20-25 minutes until golden brown.
  • 9. Cut into 24 squares while still somewhat hot. If you let them cool they become very difficult to cut.
