Chocolate Covered Matzah

Tomorrow is the last day of Passover.  Finally.  Phew.  

You can wipe away the matzah crumbs (I know they are everywhere), and finally swallow your food without needing excessive hydration.

But before you throw out those last few pieces of matzah, here's a way to jazz them up enough that you'll want to eat them year round.  This is a recipe that I tried on saltine crackers, which are really the same as matzah, only less dry. Did you hear that?  Less dry!?!?  

I will go so far as to say that this chocolate covered toffee'ed matzah is so good, you may actually forget that it is matzah.   

You start by melting equal parts brown sugar into butter. What can possibly be wrong with that?

Then you spread the mixture over a single layer of matzah.  I suggest lining your cookie sheet to make cleaning up easy.  Then, put it in the oven for about 10 minutes, until it bubbles and liquefies enough to cover the pieces.  

Next, sprinkle chocolate chips over the hot sugar mixture.

They will melt quickly, and you can spread it evenly over the matzah.  

Add chopped nuts if you so desire.

Let cool, and break into pieces.  

See how the toffee and chocolate seeps into the cracks?

Hopefully I've given you something to look forward to for next Passover.  Enjoy!

Note: I'd love to give credit to my fellow foodie bloggers who posted similar recipes, but sadly, I don't remember where I saw them all.  Thanks for the inspiration and I hope you all had a great holiday!

  1. Wow does that ever look good! Can't wait till next year to give it a try. Or should I buy the matzoh that is on sale (really cheap) and make it now. That is the dilemma.
