Toffee chocolate matzo. This stuff is truly crack. Completely utterly addictive crack. Once you start eating it, I guarantee, you will not stop. This is the best Passover candy ever. And I say that as a survivor of Hebrew School Passover candy sales, where we made our parents buy awful, awful candy for some sort of fund raising purpose. Girl Scout cookies sell themselves. Passover candy does not.

The recipe is very versatile. Matzo with toffee and chocolate makes an excellent base for any number of toppings. I liked the simplicity of just adding walnuts on top, but other variations on this recipe have used crystallized ginger, almonds, peanut butter chips or sea salt. Really it is very hard to go wrong here. Even without any toppings, this stuff flies off the plate.

A few notes: Stir the toffee constantly when you are cooking it on top of the stove. Watch the toffee carefully, there is nothing grosser than burned and bitter sugar. Rinse out the pan as early as you can after pouring the toffee over the matzo to prevent the remaining toffee from permanently sticking. If you are making a meat based Seder, then you can substitute margarine for butter. If you don’t have matzo and/or want to make this a year round recipe, use saltines or graham crackers instead of matzo. Finally, allegedly this will keep for a week, but I doubt it will last long enough to test that.

I foolishly thought that this was not a common recipe.  Then I went to a baking class sponsored by King Arthur Flour and learned that this is just a ganache tart.  *Smacks head*

Regardless of how many people are making this, you should!  It is very simple and looks very professional.  And did I mention that this is basically all chocolate?  Delicious!
