Toffee Matzoh

This is a long time family holiday favorite. Truth is, this is good any time of year. It is easy to make, delicious and will make your passover a holiday to remember.


  • 4-6 matzoh sheets
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter
  • 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • (dark chocolate, milk chocolate, white chocolate — any one of these or combination— about ¾ cup total. for easiest melting, use chips or chop chocolate finely before sprinkling over hot matzoh)


  • Cookie sheet
  • Aluminum foil
  • Cooking parchment
  • Sauce pan


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F degrees.
  2. Line a cookie sheet (a jelly roll pan with sides works best) with aluminum foil. Top with a layer of cooking parchment (it’s sticky stuff!)
  3. Line pan bumper-to-bumper with whole matzohs, breaking some to fit when necessary.
  4. Melt butter and brown sugar in heavy saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until mixutre comes to a boil. Continue cooking 3 more minutes stirring constantly. Remove from heat and pour over matzoh.
  5. Place in oven and immediately reduce heat to 350°F. Bake 12 minutes or so, checking often so make sure it doesn’t burn.
  6. Remove from oven and immediately sprinkle with chocolate chips or finely chopped chocolate. Allow to stand for about 5 minutes to let chocolate soften, then spread chocolate over matzohs. You can add chopped toasted almonds at this point if desired.
  7. Leave overnight to harden, or cool a bit then place in refrigerator until hardened. Break into pieces.
