Chocolate matzo is one of my kids' favorite recipes for Passover. And this recipe is easy enough for kids to make (provided you help with handling the hot caramel sauce and the oven).

A sprinkling of sea salt or kosher salt gives this chocolate matzoh that delightfully appealing sweet-and-salty taste. Try this recipe, and you'll see why it's one of my most-requested Passover treats.

What You'll Need

  • 3-4 boards matzoh
  • 3/4 cup Passover margarine or butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1-1/2 cups semisweet or dark chocolate chips
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts, hazelnuts or pecans (optional)
  • 1/4 teaspoon. kosher salt or sea salt

How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil. Spray with cooking spray.
  2. Spread the matzohs in the pan in a single layer, breaking them to fit if necessary.
  3. Heat the butter or margarine and brown sugar in a medium saucepan to a boil. Pour evenly over matzoh, spreading with a knife to make sure the matzoh is well covered.
  4. Bake 10-15 minutes, until the caramel is a golden brown. Turn off the oven, and remove the matzoh.
  1. Sprinkle the chocolate chips evenly over the matzoh. Return the matzoh to the oven. Let it sit in the warm (turned off) oven for 2 minutes. Remove and spread the chocolate evenly with the back of a flat spatula or a knife. (I like to use a cookie spatula (compare prices).
  2. Top with nuts, if using. Sprinkle with kosher salt.
