Here is a great recipe for a delicious Matzoh dessert passed on to us by a dear friend.
We swear, if you serve this dessert people will be asking you for the recipe for years to come — it’s delicious and super easy to make!
- 4-6 Matzohs (salted)
- 1 Cup (2 sticks) salted butter
- 1 Cup firmly packed brown sugar
- 1 Cup (or a little more) chocolate chips (semi-sweet, milk chocolate, or white chocolate chips)
- Garnish (i.e. slivered almonds, walnut pieces, Heath bar pieces, Sprinkles, M&M’s, be creative!)
Line the cookie sheet
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line a large (or two smaller) cookie sheet completely with foil. Cover the bottom of the sheet with baking parchment- on top of the foil. This is very important since the mixture becomes sticky during baking. Line the bottom of the cookie sheet evenly with the matzohs, cutting extra pieces, as required, to fit any spaces.
Combine butter and brown sugar
In a 3-quart, heavy-bottomed saucepan, combine the butter and the brown sugar. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture comes to a boil (about 2 to 4 minutes). Boil for 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat and pour over the matzoh, covering completely.
Place the baking sheet in the oven and immediately reduce the heat to 350 degrees. Bake for 12 minutes, checking every few minutes to make sure the mixture is not burning (if it seems to be browning too quickly, remove the pan from the oven, lower the heat to 325 degrees, and replace the pan).
Add chocolate chips and garnish
Remove from the oven and sprinkle immediately with the chocolate chips. Let stand for 5 minutes, then spread the melted chocolate over the matzoh. Garnish while the chocolate is still melted.
Place in freezer
Place the baking sheet in freezer until set (about an hour). Remove, break into odd shapes and place into container. Store in the refrigerator.
