Passover Matzoh Crack
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter
1 cup packed dark brown sugar
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup white chocolate chips
1/2 Tbsp vegetable oil or coconut oil
3/4 cup chopped pecans
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Arrange matzoh in one layer on the baking sheet. Break matzoh into smaller pieces in order to fill the pan completely. Set aside.
In a saucepan, melt the butter and brown sugar over medium heat, stirring constantly. Once this mixture reaches a boil, cook for a few more minutes, until the mixture thickens and starts to pull away from the sides of the pan. Remove from heat.
Pour the butter and sugar mixture over the matzoh, gently spreading it with a spatula to cover it with an even layer.
Put matzoh in the oven and turn the heat down to 350 degrees. Bake for 15 minutes, checking every so often to make sure it doesn’t burn. Turn heat down to 325 if it looks like it’s burning.
After 15 minutes, the butter and sugar mixture will have bubbled up and turned golden brown. Remove from the oven. Sprinkle matzoh immediately with the semisweet chocolate chips. Let sit for 5 minutes to melt.
After the chocolate chips have melted, spread them evenly over the toffee with a spatula. Let cool for another 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, microwave the white chocolate chips and oil in a bowl for 30 seconds. Remove from the microwave and stir with a fork. Then, microwave for another 30 seconds and stir again, until the mixture is smooth and thoroughly melted. Microwave for another 30 seconds if needed.
With a fork, drizzle the white chocolate over the matzoh. Then top with chopped nuts, and let cool. When the chocolate has hardened, break into smaller pieces and serve!
*We topped this version with melted white chocolate and pecans, but you can get creative and try dried fruit, coconut flakes or even crunched-up potato chips.
“As a kid I always loved chocolate covered matzoh during Passover. Since becoming gluten free years back, I have been denied this holiday treat. But thanks to The Nosher and this easy recipe that can use gluten free matzoh, I can once again indulge.” ~Dr. Randi Ross
