Everyone's favorite passover dessert: matzah brittle

Rich and addicting, Matzoh Brittle is simply the best Passover dessert, hands down. Even the kids will have fun making it. 

It's portable for chol hamoed picnics (the ants really like it too). Crumble on top of ice cream for a crunchy rich topping. For the perfect easy Passover dessert: this sweet nibble with fruit salad.

The Matza Brittle Recipe

6 square matzos

3/4 cup pecans, walnuts or almonds, chopped

1 cup margarine

1 3/4 cups brown sugar

1 cup chocolate chips

1/2 cup white chocolate chips, optional

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Arrange matzahs in a large baking pans in one layer. Spread the nuts evenly over the matzahs. Place several sheets of waxed paper on the counter or in another baking pan for later use.

2. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt margarine and brown sugar. Stir and bring to a boil. Boil for 2 minutes, stirring often.

3. Pour hot margarine-sugar mixture over matzahs. Immediately place in preheated oven for 10 to 15 minutes and bake until matzahs begin to brown. 

4. Remove matzahs from oven. Using a metal spatula, quickly move matzahs to the prepared waxed paper. Scatter chocolate chips over the warm crackers. Allow the chocolate chips to melt on the cooling brittle, then spread chocolate over matzos. Sprinkle on white chips if using. 

5. When completely cooled, after about 30 minutes, break into two inch pieces and store in a tightly covered container.
