Crunchy Caramel Matzo
Active Time: 20 minutes • Total Time: 35 minutes plus chilling • Makes: about 4 dozen pieces
3 lightly salted or unsalted matzos or 1 sleeve original or unsalted tops Schnucks saltines (about 38)
1/2 cup packed Schnucks light brown sugar
1/2 cup Schnucks unsalted butter (1 stick)
3/4 cup Schnucks semi sweet chocolate chips
1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line 15-1/4 x 10-1/4-inch rimmed baking pan with foil. Arrange matzos in pan, breaking any as needed to cover pan.
2. In 1- to 2-quart heavy saucepan, heat sugar and butter to boiling over medium heat, stirring constantly. Cook 3 minutes longer, stirring frequently. Immediately pour brown sugar mixture all over matzos, spreading with spatula to cover.
3. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until bubbling begins to subside and top is lightly browned, watching carefully during last 2 minutes of baking to make sure matzos don’t overbrown. (If using saltines, bake 6 to 8 minutes, watching carefully.)
4. Remove matzos from oven; immediately sprinkle with chocolate chips. Let stand 5 minutes, then spread chocolate over matzos to cover. Refrigerate at least 1 hour or until chocolate is set. Break matzos into 1-1/2- to 2-inch pieces. Store in airtight container with waxed paper between layers up to 2 weeks.
