Matzo Toffee

For a sweet treat during Passover, try matzo toffee from Everyday Food. It is so easy and good! Click here to view original recipe.

Matzo is a cracker-like flat bread made from white flour and water. It is a substitute for bread during this Jewish holiday. It tastes similar to Saltines, but without the yeast. The crackers are thin and crispy and would be great with slices of cheddar cheese.
Here are the ingredients:
-2 cups crumbled coarsely matzos
-1 1/2 cups sliced almonds
-1/2 cup unsalted butter (1 stick)
-1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
-1/2 teaspoon salt
-2 tablespoons water
-2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

To begin, preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper (I only had foil, but parchment would be better).

Toss matzos and almonds together on baking sheet and spread out.
In small saucepan, melt butter, sugar, salt, and water together. Bring to a boil and then pour over matzo-almond mixture. Toss quickly to coat evenly and spread out in the pan.
Place in the oven for about 30 minutes or until golden brown. Once matzo is out of the oven, sprinkle with chocolate chips and let sit for 5 minutes. Then take spatula and spread chocolate evenly over matzo.
Place baking sheet in refrigerator to allow for the chocolate to set. Break into pieces and place in an airtight container or plastic bag and keep refrigerated up to 5 days.
Enjoy and Happy Passover!
