Carmel Matzah Crunch

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
  • Butter
  • Chocolate Chips
  • Sea Salt
  • anything else you want to add
  • pecans, crushed almonds, coconut


  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. Line baking sheets with parchment paper
  3. Matzah needs to fit on baking sheets, I usually get 2 full sheets then break the third to use on the bottom
  4. Melt 1/2 # butter, add 1 cup brown sugar and mix thoroughly
  5. Use a large spoon and cover matzah, this doesn’t need to be perfect
  6. Bake 5 minutes then switch and bake for 5 more minutes
  7. Add 1/2 cup per baking sheet of chocolate chips totallying 1 cup
    1. let chips sit for a minute before spreading, this makes chocolate less clumpy
  8. Add salt and any other topping of choice
  9. Refrigerate
  10. After an hour break the pieces and store in airtight container


I hope everyone enjoys chocolate as much as Talya
