    Serves: 48 

    • 12 matzo crackers
    • 250g butter
    • 1 cup (155g) brown sugar
    • 340g dark chocolate chips
    • 1 cup (115g) chopped walnuts

    Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Extra time:20min chilling  ›  Ready in:50min 

    1. Preheat an oven to 180 degrees C. Line two baking trays with aluminium foil. Place the matzo crackers in a single layer on the lined baking trays, breaking to fit if necessary.
    2. Bring the butter and brown sugar to a boil in a heavy bottomed saucepan over medium heat. Continue to cook, stirring constantly until thick and smooth, about 3 minutes. Pour the hot sugar mixture over the matzo and spread evenly with a heat proof spatula.
    3. Place the caramel topped matzo in the preheated oven for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and evenly sprinkle the chocolate chips on top. Return pans to oven to melt chocolate, about 1 minute. Smooth melted chocolate to completely cover the caramel. Sprinkle with the chopped walnuts. Chill in refrigerator for 20 minutes or until set. Break into small pieces to serve.

    I love this recipe! I've been making it for years with saltines as well. I don't know if it's a computer glitch, but the proportions are off a bit. The amount of butter, brown sugar, chocolate and nuts are enough for ONE pan - not two. I used 6 crackers on one pan and had another pan ready just in case. The thick caramel was just the right amount for the one pan - it would not have stretch ed to cover both. Ditto on the chocolate and nuts. So if you want to make two pans, you need 12 crackers, 2 cups of butter, 2 cups of brown sugar, 4 cups chocolate chips and 2 cups chopped nuts! Hope this helps!  -  30 Mar 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I've made this every year for the past 20 years;it is my most requested recipe from friends and family. Instead of walnuts, I use 1C chopped pecans and 1C slivered almonds. Melt margarine (to be pareve) or butter (dairy) w/1C brown sugar, pecans & almonds, bring to a boil, then let simmer for 2 minutes. Pour over large matzah boards placed on a greased rimmed cookie sheet (break to fit - leave no holes). Bake @ 350 for 7 - 10 minutes (middle rack). Remove from oven & sprinkle w/semi-sweet chocolate chips; spread chocolate. Allow several hours for chocolate to harden. Delicious!  -  10 Apr 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I am familiar with this recipe and have made it every Passover for the last several years. It is delicious by itself or served with vanilla ice cream.  -  25 Mar 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
