Chocolate matzo is a favorite recipe for Passover. 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 matzo that delightfully appealing sweet-and-salty taste. Try this recipe, and you'll see why it's one of the most-requested Passover treats.
- 3 to 4 sheets matzo
- 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt (or, sea salt)
- 1-1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips (or, dark chocolate)
- 3/4 cup Passover margarine (or, butter)
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- Optional: 1 cup chopped walnuts, hazelnuts or pecans
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil. Spray with cooking spray.
- Spread the matzos in the pan in a single layer, breaking them to fit if necessary.
- Heat the butter or margarine and brown sugar in a medium saucepan to a boil. Pour evenly over matzo, spreading with a knife to make sure the matzo is well covered.
- Bake 10-15 minutes until the caramel is a golden brown. Turn off the oven, and remove the matzo.
- Sprinkle the chocolate chips evenly over the matzo. Return the matzo 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.
- Top with nuts, if using. Sprinkle with kosher salt.
