This recipe comes from Hannah Cordes. For more about Passover cooking, read "Mighty matzo."


  1. 4 matzo
  2. 1 cup butter
  3. 1 cup brown sugar
  4. 1 cup chocolate chips
  5. 1 cup chopped almonds or walnuts (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Cover a cookie sheet with aluminum foil and grease the foil evenly with butter (or cover cookie sheet with a silpat mat). Place the matzo side by side on the foil.
  3. In a saucepan, combine the butter and brown sugar and boil on medium-high heat for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Pour mixture evenly over the matzo.
  4. Bake for 5 minutes. Remove from the oven and immediately sprinkle the chocolate chips over the matzo. When the chips have softened, spread the chocolate evenly with a knife. If using, sprinkle nuts on top.
  5. Freeze on the baking sheet for 1 hour. Break into pieces and store in the refrigerator.
