Chocolate Toffee matzo recipeIngredients

  • 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 overlap matzos).
  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.

If you are a complete do-it-yourself kind of cook, you can even make your own matzo. We have done it in the past, especially towards the end of the holiday, when we run out. We also have our own light and fluffy matzo ball recipe.

  2. These look delicious – I can only wonder if we had these at Jennifer’s house when we were kids? I practically lived there! (Hi Jennifer)

    We made something like this for Christmas but with saltines instead of matzo. Finally, an excuse to eat matzo! Love this!
