It is Passover and a lot goes into this holiday and it is known for a lot of things and the biggest thing being, of course, matzo! Now, this stuff is good, but anything for a week strait can get a little boring, and it doesn’t scream dessert treat, until now! This is a recipe that isn’t new, but whenever I make it there are always a lot of people who haven’t tried it and it always impresses. Always. This for sure needs to be a part of your next Seder or Tuesday afternoon, either way. It is pretty simple and very similar to something you see around the holidays called “Christmas Crack” I think and during that time of year it is made with saltines. Since are crackers are many times the size, we cut down on a lot of the time with this Passover version, check it out!
All you need is (marked Kosher for Passover if you need it to be):
- A box of matzo
- 2 sticks of butter (1 cup)
- 2 cups of brown sugar
- 2 bags of chocolate chips in desired variety (I use semi-sweet)
- Oven preheated to 250 degrees
To start, line two pans with foil and put out my matzo in one layer, it should fit pretty perfectly.
Then go to the stove and melt your butter and brown sugar together until dissolved.
Once things are dissolved and start to get all bubbly, you can turn off the heat.
Take it over to the matzo and distribute evenly onto both trays and using an offset spatula, spread it out to completely cover the matzo. At this point it goes in the oven for about 10 to 15 minutes, truthfully I made this in the morning before school and it was just enough time to go change my clothes, put on some make up and throw my hair into a messy bun.
Pull them out of the oven and the pour a bag of the chocolate chips on each one and let it sit for about 10 minutes, you will want to make sure that these are also in a single layer so that the heat gets to all of them.
After they are all soft, use your offset spatula again to spread the chocolate all over the toffee, amazing. I let these sit for about 10 minutes and then I covered them with plastic wrap and put them in the fridge for a few hours.
Then all that is left to do is break them apart and enjoy!
