Description

Is sweet and salty your favorite flavor duo? If so, you’ll go nuts for these buttery, crisp Chocolate Almond Toffee Matzo Crunchies.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 stick unsalted butter (4 oz)
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • Nonstick cooking oil spray
  • About 3 1/2 sheets lightly salted matzo
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds
  • 1 teaspoon large flaked salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. In a small saucepot over medium heat, melt the butter and brown sugar together. Whisk frequently until the mixture has thickened and turned a light caramel color.
  3. Spray a large rimmed baking sheet, about 17 by 13 inches, with nonstick cooking spray. Breaking up a few pieces if you need to, arrange the matzo in a single layer.
  4. Pour the butter and brown sugar mixture over the matzo, and spread with a spatula so that it saturates every piece. Bake until golden brown, about 10 minutes.
  5. Remove from the oven and immediately sprinkle with the chocolate chips. Put the pan back in the oven until the chocolate begins to melt, about 1 minute.
  6. Use a spatula to spread the chocolate over the matzo. Sprinkle with the almonds and salt, and then allow the “toffee” to cool completely.
  7. Break it up into pieces and serve. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week.
