Personally, I want me children to have an understanding of what the holiday means and have some sort of discipline. With that said, they are missing the baked treats that normally adorn our home. I haven’t made this particular recipe in a few years and felt that this was the perfect solution to their sweet craving. Sometimes I toast some pecans or almonds and sprinkle them on the top, but this time I opted to chop up some of the homemde candied orange peels I had in the freezer. The scent and the taste of the orange made all the difference in the world.
1 cup chopped nuts (hazelnuts, almonds, pecans, walnuts)
• line a rimmed baking sheet with foil and lightly spray with cooking spray
• lay matzos in an even layer on foil
• melt butter in pan. when melted add brown sugar and bring to a boil. once boiled, pour mixture over matzos. use an off set spatula to spread an even layer. bake for 4 minutes.
• take tray out of oven and and sprinkle with chocolate chips. put back in the oven for 1 minute. remove from the oven and use an off set spatula to spread and even layer. sprinkle with nuts or whatever topping you desire or just leave plain. put in freezer until set. once set, break apart as if it were brittle. store in a cool, dry place.
