  • 2 cups coarsely crumbled matzos
  • 1 1/2 cups sliced almonds
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment. In a bowl, toss matzo pieces with almonds.

  2. In a saucepan, bring butter, sugar, salt, and 2 tablespoons water to a boil over medium, stirring constantly. Working quickly, drizzle matzo mixture with syrup, and toss.

  3. Using a heatproof spatula, spread mixture onto prepared sheet. Bake until golden, about 30 minutes. Remove from oven; sprinkle with chocolate chips. Let chocolate melt 5 minutes; spread chocolate over matzo toffee. Refrigerate until chocolate has set. Break into pieces, and serve.

    I was looking for a gluten free and kid friendly (to make and eat) dessert to bring to Passover. I doubled the recipe and it fit perfection a standard cookie sheet. It was delicious and a huge success. I highly recommend.

    Easier to make than the traditional way of laying the matzo flat on a cookie sheet. Watch carefully that it doesn't burn. I used half butter and half Earth Balance butter spread. I only baked it for 15 minutes and used chopped toasted almonds instead.

    I was invited to a Seder and was asked to bring a dessert. Seeing as how I'm Catholic and have never been to a Seder, I really didn't know what to bring. I found this recipe and made sure to use Passover approved Matzo, parve butter and chocolate chips. Even when it is compared to non-Kosher desserts it is pretty much awesomesauce. I'm soo excited to bring this to dinner because it even surpassed my high expectations. Thanks for the great recipe Martha!

    I have made this many times -- kids and adults really like it . And it is sooo easy. To AZve -- re-read instruction #2 and you will have your syrup answer.

    WHAT SYRUP? The Ingredients do not call for syrup. Please advise. 2. .... "drizzle matzo mixture with syrup"
