A sweet and tasty snack to help celebrate the Passover holiday.
  • 4 to 6 sheets unsalted matzohs
  • 2 sticks unsalted butter
  • 1 cup firmly-packed light brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup semisweet mini chocolate chips
  • sea salt
  • Chocolate -covered matzoh should keep (refrigerated) for about one week.
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  2. Line an edged baking sheet with foil or parchment paper.
  3. Cover the bottom of the sheet with matzoh, making extra pieces as necessary to fill in any spaces.
  4. In a 4 quart heavy duty saucepan, melt the butter and brown sugar together, and cook over medium heat, until the mixture begiins to boil. Boil for 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat, add vanilla, and pour over matzoh, spreading with spatula.
  5. Put the pan in the oven and reduce the heat to 350 degrees. Bake for 15 minutes.
  6. Remove from oven and immediately cover with chocolate chips. Let stand 5 minutes, then spread with spatula.
  7. Sprinkle sea salt on top (cayenne of chili pepper too if you want a little kick).
When baking the matzoh in the oven with the butter and brown sugar sauce, make sure to keep checking on it to make sure the matzoh doesn’t burn. My first batch burned a bit. The sauce will start to bubble very quickly which is totally fine. If the matzoh starts burning, simply lower the oven temperature.

After adding the chocolate chips, make sure to let them sit on top matzoh for at least 5 minutes while it cools before spreading it over top the butter mixture.

Store immediately in an air tight container.

Let cool completely. Then, break the matzoh into many pieces and store pieces in an airtight container.
