  • olive oil cooking spray (such as PAM®)

  • 4 unsalted matzo boards, or more to taste

  • 1 cup unsalted butter

  • 1 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed

  • ¾ cup chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  2. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil; spray with cooking spray.

  3. Arrange matzo to fit into pan; break boards if necessary.

  4. Combine butter and brown sugar together in a saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly until boiling; boil for about 3 minutes.

  5. Pour butter mixture evenly over matzo.

  6. Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven and immediately reduce heat to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  7. Bake for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C) if the matzo are smoking too much.

  8. Remove baking sheet from oven and sprinkle matzo with chocolate chips. Let stand to melt chocolate, 5 minutes.

  9. Spread the melted chocolate over matzo. Place in refrigerator until chilled and set. Break into pieces when cooled.

Cook's Note:

Add sliced almonds or the sprinkles after the chocolate melts on the warm matzo. You can also do this with white chocolate or add white and regular chips at the same time and swirl them. Be creative!!
