This recipe really speaks for itself. It's matzo covered in a layer of delicious caramel that snaps satisfyingly, just like a brittle should, and that caramel is covered in a thin layer of chocolate. There can even be sea salt or chopped almonds sprinkled on top.
This is a fantastic snack, an easy dessert to make without turning the oven on, and it's great for entertaining. Given that Passover begins this Monday the 25th, I thought it was an appropriate time to share this recipe. I'm not Jewish, but I grew up with a good number of Jewish friends, so matzo (note: singular is matzah) is a familiar thing to me. I've had matzo brownies, matzo chocolate chip cookies, and matzo ball soup (which I love), but this is by far my favorite way of using matzo. Of course, if you don't have any matzo on hand, you can also make this recipe with saltine crackers.
I feel like I must say, before sharing this recipe, that the photos really don't do this justice. Melted chocolate and caramel are hard to capture with a digital camera in a way that captures all the beauty of the two.
