Matzoh Dishes
« on: April 11, 2014, 01:36:15 PM »
Chocolate/Caramel Matzoh Crunch
Aka "that Matzoh crack that Amy makes"

Preheat oven to 375. Line a heavy baking sheet with foil, cover foil with parchment paper.

Take 4-6 sheets of matzoh and cover the surface of the baking sheet. 

Melt 2 sticks of butter.  Add 1 cup of packed brown sugar and bring to a boil, stirring constantly.

Stir for a few more minutes until the butter and sugar are combined, but remove from heat before it starts to harden!

Pour evenly over matzoh, then place in oven. Immediately lower heat to 350, and bake for 12-15 minutes. Check a little early to be sure it isn't burning.

When finished baking, remove from oven and sprinkle with 3/4 cup of dark chocolate chips.  Allow to sit for 5 minutes, then spread chocolate.  Place in freezer to set.  Break up into smaller pieces.

I like to salt the caramel mixture a bit, and you can add things like craisins, nuts, mini marshmallows, etc. after spreading the chocolate.

Easy peasy, and yes, it is crack.

Ah!  I wondered if that was it.  I have done it with saltines, so you have the salt in those.  I thought about using graham crackers once when we had no saltines.  I am sure that would work too.  matzoh sounds like a perfect option for this!  And larget pieces, which makes it easier to spread the mixutre.

Thank you!

Sorry Mac, I totally missed this.   It's been years since I called, but back when I did the plain matZoh that was specifically for Passover was safe.

I just made a recipe for something that it supposed to be like Matzoh. Having never tried Matzoh before, I am curious what it can be used for. (The recipe book references matzoh balls.)

I am going to try GNís recipe, but what other things can you do with Matzoh?  What are your favourite Matzoh recipes?

This is similar to the Matzoh Kugel I make for Passover. My version uses egg, so this is probably better for you.

They are like little unfilled dumplings, served in broth, typically chicken broth. You could absolutely put them in veg broth.

Matzo is not something that people who aren't Jewish normally seek out, lol. Many people think it just tastes like cardboard. I love matzo ball soup, but I'm not sure what people who haven't grown up with it would think. You make them from matzo meal, eggs, oil, spices. Form into a ball and drop in boiling water. When done, add them to broth and serve. Or set them aside (I set extras aside and make more soup later.)

The matzoh I made is bland, but oddly interesting. I looked up a dumpling recipe and will have to try it.

To use matzoh in matzoh balls it has to be finely ground into a meal.

Bensmom, oddly my non-Jewish coworkers liked Matzoh better than we did, lol. They couldnít get enough of the stuff.

I had non-Jewish coworkers from the animal shelter get giddy in winter when they were able to buy Matzoh crackers (?) as well. I could never have them, but at least a few people look forward to them as a festive Ďtreatí each year.  Interesting.

I am fascinated by other cultures and traditions. I spent a month researching breakfasts around the world just for fun once. That was a huge challenge, and I still donít have everywhere because of various language barriers.
