Matzo Toffee Brittle

"I haven't tried this yet, but wanted to get it posted before I misplace the recipe. This way I will always know where I can find it. It sure does sound yummy! Update: I've made maybe 12 batches of this stuff -- and it's great. Everyone keeps asking for more. It's so easy to make and makes a great food gift wrapped up in a nice tin or box. Don't be afraid to try other nuts for the toppings. I ran out of almonds at one point and substituted pecans and walnuts. Delicious! I've also used the milk chocolate morsels with great success."

  1. These Turned Out Fabulous!.. Unfortunately I do have to make a change only ONE the next time I Fix These., 15 mins is a bit too long in Oven, It Dries it out and takes away from the flavor, which makes you taste more Cracker flavor in the End Result. When it is all Bubbly at about 10 minutes it is Perfect to come out the Oven.And thats if your baking at 350 Degrees..However you could decrease the baking temp to leave them in longer if you want. Thanks For Posting..
  2. I just got this recipe out of my Southern Living magazine - I'm so glad someone posted it. This is a great recipe. If you like SKOR bars you are going to love this one. VERY EASY. This would also be a great for Passover**** I forgot to add this before. I find that this recipe is better with 1 stick of unsalted butter & 1 stick of salted butter. It's not as sweet but definately worth the try.


This is a picture of me with my oldest grandson, DJ and was taken this past summer when we went on a cruise and land tour of Alaska. I am retired after working for the same company for 25 years. My husband is a retired military officer. After the military he started working for Lockheed and is now retired from there as well. We live in San Jose, CA and have lived in the same house for over 33 years. We have two grown children and 6 beautiful grandchildren. I love to try new recipes and jazz up old ones. Taste of Home and Southern Living are my favorite recipe magazines(I enjoy reading a little bit about the people who submit the recipes). Recipe Zaar is just an incredible site. I've made many new friends since joining. I have tons of cookbooks -- but now when I need a new recipe that I know I can count on, I come here! <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src="">
