Passover just ended so now is the time to browse the interwebs to look for things to do with leftover Matzo. At least that is what I do.
Before I discuss this Salted Chocolate Matzo Toffee, I need to mention how my heart breaks that the community around Poway Synagogue. There are no words that will help the families effected fully heal from the shooting, but I hope that they find some peace one day.
It really troubles me that people have such hate in them. I have such a hard time understanding that much anger and hate towards a group of people, all based on a religion. Now, I am not religious, so I can’t grasp how someone could really feel that their faith is better than another.
The whole situation is horrible, but in looking for a silver lining, I have been hearing about stories about the victims and survivors. I love when I get to hear the acts of heroism in a horrible situation. It reminds me that there will always be good in the world.
Good things in the world… caring neighbors, big glasses of wine, fun family memories, and chocolate!
As I have mentioned before, I am not religious. I am not really anything, but I appreciate learning about the different cultures and traditions of people of different areas and faiths. I think that we all have something to bring to the table and can happily learn from each other. Food and family bring people together.
While Matzo doesn’t have too much taste, I really like it. It has a nice neutral flavor that I like to load up with butter and a sprinkling of salt. Of course, peanut butter on it is delicious too.
I’ve also made barks with matzo in the past, but I wanted to try making a toffee with it. My S’more Crack is a great toffee that uses graham crackers so I was inspired by that to make this Salted Chocolate Matzo Toffee. Oh man, it is a real winner!
I used pecans on the Salted Chocolate Matzo Toffee, because I traditionally see pecans on toffee. But you can swap out the pecans for peanuts or hazelnuts. Even pistachios would be great too. Not sure which one to try? Then sprinkle different kinds of nuts in different sections of the matzo. Want to try something else fun? Mix them all together! You really can’t go wrong.
However, I do insist that you sprinkle some great sea salt on the top of the chocolate and nuts. I prefer to use Maldon Sea Salt Flakes. I like the taste of the salt and the size of the crystals.
Make some Salted Chocolate Matzo Toffee and enjoy your day!
