Passover-Friendly Choco-Toffee Matzoh

Make Passover-Friendly Choco-Toffee Matzoh

Though some parents do not require their kids to keep Passover's dietary laws, the holiday's central food item — matzoh — is something that can be enjoyed by any tot comfortable eating solid foods. As a replacement for bread, or chametz, matzoh is transformed into many forms throughout the holiday - from matzoh balls (dumplings in soup), and farfel (stuffing) to matzoh brei (omelette) and desserts. In an effort to transform a sheet of matzoh into a sweet Passover snack, a friend and her baker-in-training got to work on some choco-toffee matzoh that allowed him to use his preschool creativity when adding toppings to the scrumptious treat.

Ingredients for our Treat

Prepare Your Matzoh

Make Your Caramel

Pour Caramel Over Matzoh

Add Chocolate

Spread Chocolate

Add Toppings

Cool completely

Adapted from Marcy Goldman's
4 to 5 pieces of matzoh
1 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
1 cup unsalted butter
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Toppings, as desired (we used marshmallows, sprinkles and dried apricots)


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit, and line a baking sheet with aluminum foil
  2. Place the matzoh in one layer on the baking sheet
  3. In a saucepan, melt the butter and brown sugar over medium heat, stirring constantly. Once the mixture reaches a boil, continue to cook for three minutes, still stirring, until thickened and just starting to pull away from the sides of the pan.
  4. Remove from heat and pour over the matzoh, spreading an even layer with a heat-proof spatula.
  5. Put the pan in the oven, then immediately turn the heat down to 350 degrees. Bake for 15 minutes, watching to make sure it doesn't burn.
  6. After 15 minutes, the toffee should have bubbled up and turned a rich golden brown. Remove from the oven and immediately sprinkle the chocolate over the pan.
  7. Let sit for five minutes, then spread the now-melted chocolate evenly with a spatula.
  8. Add your favorite toppings while the chocolate is still melted.
  9. Let cool completely, then break into smaller pieces and store in an airtight container.

I made these for a friend's Seder last night. To say that they were a hit would be an understatement... they were totally gone before the meal even began!

snarkypants - I thought the same thing, but my grocery store had Kosher for Passover marshmallows this year. They weren't as good as the real thing, but not half bad!
