Today marks the beginning of the Jewish holiday, Passover and whether or not you're Jewish does not matter when it comes to this recipe for Toffee Matzo Brittle. What may matter, is whether or not you have an addictive personality. We dare you to only eat one of these sweet and salty treats! To make the Matzo Brittle you will need: 4-6 sheets of your favorite matzo 1 cup (2 sticks) of unsalted butter, cut into chunks 1 cup packed light brown sugar a bog pinch of sea salt 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract 1 1/2 cups semisweet or bittersweet chocolate chips 1 cup toasted almonds, chopped extra sea salt for sprinkling
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line an 11x17 inch baking sheet with parchment paper. Line the bottom of the baking sheet with matzo, covering all parts. You'll need to break the matzo to fit the edges of the pan. In a medium heavy-bottomed saucepan, melt the butter and brown sugar together and stir it over medium heat until it begins to boil. Once boiling, let it bubble for three minutes, stirring well. It will thicken a bit. Remove from heat and add the salt and vanilla. Pour quickly over the matzo. Bake the covered crackers for 10 minutes, watching it carefully as the edges may begin to burn. Remove from oven and immediately cover with chocolate chips. Let stand five minutes then spread them evenly across the caramel using an offset spatula. Sprinkle with nuts and sea salt. Let cool and break into pieces.
