    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"

    I usually make saltine-toffee in a similar recipe...what a great idea to use matzo, instead of saltine crackers! I am definitely making this for my family's seder tonight!

    Unleavened bread is exactly right. It is eaten at Passover by Jewish families to celebrate being liberated from slavery. There was no time to bake bread! The fleeing slaves ate matzos. This recipe is excellent made with saltines. Omit the salt. I think the original recipe WAS made with saltines but Jewish people adapted it because we are prohibited from eating baked good that rise in the oven during the holiday week.

    A friend brought this Matzo Toffee to my Passover Sedar last year. Family and friends decided it is now going to be one of my traditional recipes I'm going to make EVERY year!!!!!!!!! Thanks so much Martha!

    matzos are unleavened bread, that are like an unsalted cracker (I think).

    You can buy the double sided version from matzel toff (matzeltoff.com) and they have a Pareve version for Passover! It's sooooooooo good.
