  • Cover the bottom of the prepared dish with matzohs, breaking and fitting pieces into spaces as needed.

  • Cook the margarine and brown sugar in a heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium-low heat until the mixture is well combined and bubbling, about 3 minutes; pour over the matzohs in the baking dish.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until the syrup is thickened and bubbling, about 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and sprinkle evenly with chocolate chips. Let the candy stand for 5 minutes to melt the chocolate, then spread the melted chocolate evenly over the candy with a spatula. Cool completely and break into pieces to serve.

I've made this recipe before from a fantastic book I found at my library so I know it can be awesome! I had some problems with this one though it could very easily have been my fault somehow which is why I'm giving it a high rating. I used unsalted butter instead of margarine so maybe that's what messed me up? I followed all other directions to the letter and when I removed it from the oven the matzoh had floated to the top! Anyone else have this happen? Also my chocolate chips crystalized from the intense heat so I would recommend a brief cool-off period just in case. This can be a delicious recipe and I wish you better luck than I had! Thanks for posting CC.:) Read More

I've been making this recipe for years but mine called for white sugar not brown sugar and it called for something like 5 minutes in a 400 degree oven. I followed this recipe and the cook time wound up being probably double what it should have been so I wound up with burnt caramel -- yuck. I might try this again but next time I know better.

a friend gave me this recipe last year I didn't believe it could taste so good! It tastes just like a Heath Bar. We acutally used saltine crackers and followed the rest of the recipe exactly. Everyone loved it! Give it a try and you will be surprised! Read More
