Matzo Brittle

Last year Dustin’s mom made a delicious matzo brittle for Passover. We couldn’t stop eating it and decided it should be a yearly tradition to make this quick and easy treat. Tonight we are hosting a Passover Seder with some friends out here, and we will most definitely be serving this matzo brittle for dessert.

First, I spread matzo over a cookie sheet lined with foil. Next I made a caramel sauce by combing 1/2 cup of brown sugar, 1/2 cup of butter, and a splash of salt until it was bubbly. I added 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract and a few shakes of vanilla sugar before pouring it over the matzo. We put the matzo lined cookie sheet in the oven at 350° for about 7 minutes. Then we sprinkled 1 cup of cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips on top, waited a couple of minutes then spread the melted chocolate all over the top. I pressed sliced almonds on about 2/3 of brittle (in case some people don’t like nuts) before putting the cookie sheet in the oven. I came back later in the day once everything had set and broke the brittle into pieces, all ready to go over for the evening’s festivities.

Have a nice Passover!
