Recipe contributed by Jennifer Hazen.

So, If you are looking for a Passover treat this year, whip up a batch of fun with this chocolate toffee matzo recipe. Simple and delicious, it is a gift from the heavens that is even better than simple chocolate-covered matzo.


prep time: 15 MINUTES

cook time: 5 MINUTES

additional time: 2 HOURS

total time: 2 HOURS 20 MINUTES


  • 1 box matzo (15 pieces)
  • 2 sticks (1 cup) butter (for Parve, use margarine)
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 3 cups chopped chocolate or morsels (for Parve, use non-dairy chocolate)
  • 1 cup chopped nuts (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 300F (150C).
  2. Line two or more baking pans/cookie sheets with foil.
  3. Break each sheet of matzo in half and arrange on lined cookie sheets (It’s OK if some matzos overlap).
  4. Melt butter and sugar over low heat, stirring constantly.
  5. Pour over matzo and spread with a spatula (It will not cover the matzo completely).
  6. Sprinkle chocolate over matzo.
  7. Bake for 5 minutes, or until chocolate melts (the morsels of chocolate might not look melted).
  8. Test with a spatula or knife. If not spreadable, bake a few more minutes.
  9. Once spreadable, remove from oven; spread chocolate over matzo.
  10. (Optional) Sprinkle with nuts.
  11. Put trays, uncovered, in the freezer until hardened, about 2 hours.
  12. Break matzo into smaller, uneven pieces and store in zip-lock bags in the freezer.


This goes quickly, at least it does in my house. The secret is to hide a bit. Not like an afikomen for the kids to find, but for yourself, later.
