Candied Matzo Recipe is Deelish
It’s doesn’t matter if you celebrate Easter or Passover. Here’s something yummy for your tummy.
To be honest, this is not my recipe. My friend, Caroline who runs a tight ship with a smile at my favorite supermarket’s courtesy counter, introduced me to this wonderful confection.
Last week Caroline was kind enough offer me a sample of her treat. All it took was one bite and my taste buds had big smiley faces on them.
Of course today is Easter Sunday and Passover doesn’t officially end until sundown on Tuesday. With that in mind I figured here’s something relevant that all of us can enjoy.
Recipe for Candied Matzo
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees
Line cookie sheets with foil
Separate ten matzos each into four pieces
You will need three sticks of butter
Two cups of brown sugar
One bag of chocolate chips
Your preference..several cups of crushed peanuts,almonds, or Caroline’s favorite, pecans.
Melt mixture of butter and sugar until it boils.
Brush on to each piece of matzo
Place coated matzo into oven.
Leave in oven until you see the butter and sugar bubbling on top of the matzo. This will take 5 to 8 minutes. Be careful not to burn the topping.
Melt the chocolate in a separate pot.
When matzo comes out of the oven, let it cool.
Drizzle melted chocolate on top of the matzo.
Spread a layer of nuts on top.
Place the candied matzo in fridge for about an hour.
After they’ve cooled, break into pieces (like peanut brittle or bark) and enjoy!
I know Neil Diamond wrote the song “Sweet Caroline” for Caroline Kennedy.
For today, we’ll dedicate the song to Caroline for sharing her sweet sensation.
Have a happy Easter and Passover!
