I know not everyone celebrates Passover, a Jewish holiday. But, I am going to writing a post about the importance of tradition. For me holidays and traditions have evolved with time, but the always center around food. I love to cook and bake, an unusual combination. When I cook its an opportunity to give a part of myself to the people I love, sharing my traditions and in some cases value.
For those of us who show they care with food, I introduce “matzah crack” This is a staple for Passover. It can be eaten as a desert or as a snack. I just recommend not starting if you are planning to only have one. Its the kind of crunchy, sweet, salty snack that keeps having you eat one more piece.
- Matzah 5-6 sheets
- Brown Sugar
- Chocolate Chips
- Sea Salt
- anything else you want to add
- pecans, crushed almonds, coconut
- Preheat oven to 350
- Line baking sheets with parchment paper
- Matzah needs to fit on baking sheets, I usually get 2 full sheets then break the third to use on the bottom
- Melt 1/2 # butter, add 1 cup brown sugar and mix thoroughly
- Use a large spoon and cover matzah, this doesn’t need to be perfect
- Bake 5 minutes then switch and bake for 5 more minutes
- Add 1/2 cup per baking sheet of chocolate chips totallying 1 cup
- let chips sit for a minute before spreading, this makes chocolate less clumpy
- Add salt and any other topping of choice
- After an hour break the pieces and store in airtight container
