Ingredients (Adapted from Food52’s Sarah Jampel)
- 4-6 sheets of matzo (depending on how much space you have on your baking sheet)
- 1 1/2 stick butter
- 3/4 cup sugar (I know it seems excessive and it is… but it’s also delicious)
- 14 oz Semi sweet chocolate
- 14 oz milk chocolate
There’s nothing like chocolate… and butter… and sugar. I don’t think there’s a recipe that combines those ingredients to negative impact. This is no exception. Not to mention, this matzo recipe is incredibly easy and almost impossible to mess up. I made this for my “Passover” party, where we wanted some kind of matzo dish. I’m so pleased I made this, mostly because I ate the majority and it was oh-so-good. Sure, you need an oven – but that’s really about it. So read, and eat.
- Preheat the oven to 400F, cover a baking sheet with aluminum foil
- Lay the baking sheet with matzo – as much as you can!!
- Melt the butter and sugar together on the stovetop – and spread it on top of the matzo
- Pop it in the oven for 3 minutes
- Take it out and break the chocolate evenly over all the matzo
- If the chocolate isn’t melting the way you want – pop it back again in the oven for another 3 minutes and then spread the chocolate around.
- At this point, let your creativity do the thinking! I ended up adding some old oreo chocolate I had sitting in the pantry along with almonds, salt and even some red pepper
- Take them into the freezer overnight or just eat them hot… either way – it’s a super incredibly sweet snack for all of the time. Eat everything? Or just share it…I guess.
See what I mean!? The recipe is basically – melt butter and sugar, spread – add chocolate, spread more – and freeze it. Though to be perfectly honest, I did enjoy it warm much more than cool and crunchy. There’s something about that fresh taste of full butter that gets me every time! I would caution against making too much of this… I thought I made just enough for four people, and after these crazy people only ate one or two pieces each, I ate quite a lot myself – no help needed. Stomach ache later? Sure. But was it worth it? Um. obviously.
