Chocolate Toffee Matzo
2 sticks (1 cup) unsalted butter or Passover margarine
1 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
1 (12-ounce) bag semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 overflowing cup chopped pecans (toasted if desired, for more flavor)
1/2-teaspoon sea salt or kosher salt
1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a rimmed baking sheet with heavy duty aluminum foil, making sure the foil goes up and over the edges, (for easy transfer to cutting board) and top with sheet of parchment paper.
2) Cover baking sheet with matzos, cutting and piecing together as necessary to fill the entire pan.
3) Make toffee: Combine butter and brown sugar in a medium saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly with a whisk, until mixture comes to a boil. (If it looks like it’s separating, just keep stirring; it will come together.) Once mixture comes to a boil, continue cooking and stirring for another 3 minutes until foamy and thickened. (Be extra careful, toffee will be very hot) Immediately pour toffee over matzos using a spatula, spread into an even layer.
4) Put the pan into the oven and bake for about 10 minutes, or until the toffee topping is crackled and bubbling. Remove pan and place on wire cooling rack. Immediately scatter chocolate chips evenly over top. Wait a few minutes for the chips to soften, use a thin spatula to spread chocolate into an even layer.
5) Sprinkle with pecans and salt.
6) Refrigerate until the chocolate is firm, about 45 minutes. Don’t leave it in the fridge much longer, otherwise it will be hard to cut.
7) Lift foil and transfer matzo onto a large cutting board. Using a large sharp knife, cut into 2-inch squares. Store in an airtight container in the fridge and serve cold.
