Sweet Memories + Food52

 

As a kid, I loved to tag along with my mom and her friends (who were more like family) to the Jewish Passover celebration. I couldn’t’ve been any older than, say, ten, the few times we went. Such good memories! 

I wanted to honor the Passover tradition in my own sort of way by sharing the recipe for this tasty chocolate Matzo (also Matzoh or Matzah) treat! I snagged it from my favorite recipe website, Food52.

Let me start by saying, Food52 has never let me down. Most of their recipes include simple, everyday ingredients to create the finniest, freshest dishes that even an amateur, self-taught chef like myself, can get darn near perfect the first time around! How’s that for a little culinary inspiration? The site even has a space where you can set up a personal account and save the recipes you really enjoy for quick reference. You can also post and share some of your own homemade dishes with others in the Food52 community. Pretty cool concept!

Now peeps, beware! This salty, sweet chocolate Matzo snack is super-duper addicting! Some even refer to it as “Matzo crack.” Go figure!


Grocery List:
4 to 6 sheets of Matzo
1 ½ sticks of butter
¾ cups of sugar
14 ounces of semi-sweet chocolate
14 ounces of dark chocolate
Note: any kind of chocolate will do – I also didn’t measure out how much chocolate I used. Just load her up! J

Directions:
1. Pre-heat oven to 400F and cover large baking sheet with aluminum foil
2. Layer baking sheet with Matzo
3. Melt the butter and sugar together in a small saucepan over medium heat and bring to a boil
4. Spread the butter mixture over the matzo squares
5. Place baking sheet in the oven for approx. 3 minutes
6. Remove from oven and spread chocolate over matzo sheets with a wooden spoon
7. Freeze matzo overnight (for best results) or until chocolate has hardened and break into pieces
