Tasty Passover Snacks

matzah-crunch.jpgWhile there are many delicious foods to eat during Passover, one thing missing is a selection of good tasty snacks.  There are numerous recipes for cookies and cakes made with special matzo cake meal, or sponge cakes made with an obscene amount of eggs and sugar however, most of these treats taste bizarrely similar.   

One of my favorite snacks involves a simple piece of matzah, doctored up with Chocolate, nuts and a toffee crunch.  How can you go wrong with that?  It’s simple to make, stores well, and tastes yummy. 

This seasonal snack goes under many names, but I think Matzo Crunch is the most appropriate.  Here is the recipe:

 Toffee Chocolate Matzo Crunchmatzo
2 sticks butter 
1 cup brown sugar
1 bag chocolate chips 
1/2 cup chopped nuts (walnuts, almonds or pecans generally)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.   Use cookie sheet with sides.  Line pan with aluminum foil or parchment.  If using foil, grease sheet.  Cover pan with sheets of matzo.  Break matzo into smaller pieces to fit if necessary.   Melt butter, add brown sugar, stir frequently and cook 2-3 minutes till bubbly.  Pour mixture over matzo and bake it until bubbly and slightly toasty looking.  (note: I have read recipes saying anywhere from 7 -15 minutes).  Make sure to watch closely so the matzo does not burn. Remove from oven and sprinkle chocolate chips over the matzo.  Let stand a few minutes to let chocolate melt.  Spread evenly over matzo.  Sprinkle with chopped nuts.  Refrigerate or freeze till chocolate and toffee hardens.  Break into pieces.  Serve and enjoy!
