Matzo Cracked Chocolate Recipe [Dessert 2020] For Kitchen
Matzo Crack 2020 Chocolate Seriously my friends, is there anything better than chocolate and toffee together? Especially when the toffee has a brown sugar-flavored buttery snap and luscious chocolate is smeared over the top so it hardens and melds with the crackly caramelized matzoh underneath. When a marriage is this good, a picture can only do partial justice to the love that exists between the happy couple.he Caramelized Matzoh Crunch, adapted from the original recipe by Marcy Goldman, I added a good pinch of salt to the original recipe, as well as a soup çon of vanilla too. And there’s no law (yet…) that says instead of pressing some crushed toasted nuts on the warm chocolate, go minimalist and simple sprinkle a few grains of flaky sea salt and roasted cocoa nibs over the top.
Lastly, don’t be tempted to get all fancy and eschew the standard chocolate chips and chop up some top-notch chocolate for the coating. Since chocolate chips are designed to hold their shape and harden firmly after they’re melted, here you should use regular chocolate chips, the kind you buy in the supermarket, for spreading on top.Matzo crack, sometimes more delicately referred to as “matzo brittle,” is a sweet, salty, crunchy, and crackly snack made with Passover-safe (unleavened) matzo crackers shellacked with chocolate, toffee, and/or a caramel candy shell. From there you can stick on just about anything to give it a personal touch. Popular toppings include peppermint bits, nuts, and seeds for crunch, along with chocolate chips, sprinkles, coconut flakes, and marshmallow.
How To Make Matzoh Crack ?
Combine quinoa, hemp seeds, and matzo pieces in a bowl with melted coconut oil and maple syrup. Spread quinoa matzo mixture in a thin layer on a lined baking sheet and bake. Make your toffee. In a medium sauce pan over medium heat combine butter and brown sugar stirring constantly until it reaches a boil and keep stirring until foamy and thickened. Remove bark from oven and immediately pour toffee over and bake for another 10 minutes. Remove from oven and add chopped chocolate all over the toffee and let melt. Spread chocolate evenly and place in fridge until chilled and you can cut into it.
Chocolate Matzoh Crunch Recipe
- 4 to 6 sheets unsalted matzohs
- 1 cup (8 ounces, 230 g) unsalted butter, cut into chunks
- 1 cup (215 g) firmly-packed light brown sugar
- big pinch of sea salt
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 cups (240 g) semisweet chocolate chips (or chopped bittersweet or semisweet chocolate)
- 1 cup (80 g) toasted sliced almonds (optional).
Line a rimmed baking sheet (approximately 11 x 17″, 28 x 42 cm) completely with foil, making sure the foil goes up and over the edges. Cover the foil with a sheet of parchment paper.Preheat the oven to 375º F (190º C).
Line the bottom of the sheet with matzoh, breaking extra pieces as necessary to fill in any spaces.
In a 3-4 quart (3-4l ) heavy duty saucepan, melt the butter and brown sugar together, and cook over medium heat, stirring, until the butter is melted and the mixture is beginning to boil. Boil for 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat, add the salt and vanilla, and pour over matzoh. Working quickly, spread the caramel with a heatproof spatula.
Put the pan in the oven and reduce the heat to 350º F (175º C) degrees. Bake for 15 minutes. As it bakes, it will bubble up but make sure it’s not burning every once in a while. If it is in spots, remove from oven and reduce the heat to 325 F (160 C), then replace the pan.
Remove from oven and immediately cover with chocolate chips. Let stand 5 minutes, then spread with an offset spatula.
If you wish, sprinkle with toasted almonds (or another favorite nut, toasted and coarsely-chopped), a sprinkle of flaky sea salt, or roasted cocoa nibs.
Let cool completely, the break into pieces and store in an airtight container until ready to serve. It should keep well for about one week.
- Matzo crack can be a little messy to eat because of the chocolate.
- In my opinion, the chocolate adds a delicious dimension, but you can leave it out. My trick is to serve it right out of the fridge and eat it before it melts in your hands. Or have napkins handy.
- Needless to say, the chocolate is not an issue if you use it as an ice cream topping or as the “crisp” in an apple or berry crisp.
- It’s more flavorful though if you can stand to wait
- I admit to eating this stuff right out of the freezer.
- 5-7 minutes for it to come to room temperature.
Final Authors Words
Matzo Crack 2020 Chocolate You don’t have to be Jewish to like or make this (just like you don’t need to be Christian to like Christmas presents) but it’s delicious and super-easy to make…you can keep the candy thermometer in the drawer as well!Feel free to substitute milk chocolate or white chocolate, and instead of the crushed almonds, to play around with toasted shredded coconut or other kinds of nuts. As I type, I’m thinking wouldn’t pistachios and white chocolate be nice together on top? Maybe next year…I spent this morning at my market handing little sacks of this to my favorite vendors (and a few I’m trying to win over.) So if you’re out at a market in Paris this morning and see the lots of butchers, fishmongers, from agers, and olive merchants snacking on something, you’ll know what it is.
