This is probably my most favourite dessert to make for Passover. It’s really the MOST delicious thing you can put in your mouth. My go to recipe has always been topping it just with chocolate chips and #maldon sea salt, but for the last few years, I’ve topped a few of my chocolate caramel matzahs with toasted almonds, shredded coconut and even some with salty potato chips! Each kind is better than the next! My personal favourite has to be the toasted almonds! … Seriously delicious.
I’m warning you right now tho, this stuff is lethal and requires major self control! Leave it open near yourself and be prepared to eat the whole thing!

WiseEats's Matzah Crack

Course Dessert
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes


  • 6 unsalted matzahs
  • 1 cup unsalted butter 2 sticks
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups chopped semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup slivered almonds
  • 2 tbsp shredded coconut
  • Maldon sea salt


  • Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line the largest cookie tray you have with a layer of foil, then cover the foil with a sheet of parchment. Cover the sheet tray with the 6 pieces of matzah.
  • Combine butter, brown sugar, and a generous pinch of sea salt in a saucepan. Cook over medium heat, whisking constantly, until the mixture comes to a boil (2-4 minutes). Boil for 3 additional minutes.
  • Remove from the heat and pour the toffee mixture over the matzah.
  • Use a spatula to spread evenly across the entire surface of the matzah. Do this part quickly or else it will start to cool down and get sticky making it super hard to spread.
  • Place baking sheet in the oven and immediately reduce the heat to 350°F. Bake for 15 minutes. Check frequently to be sure that the mixture is not burning. If it starts to brown too fast, reduce the heat to 325°F.
  • Meanwhile, toast almonds in a dry pan on medium heat. Toast for 3-5 minutes. Remove and place in a bowl.
  • Remove from oven and sprinkle the chocolate chips. DO NOT TOUCH THEM for 5 minutes! Spread the chocolate using a spatula.
  • Sprinkle some with salt, nuts and whatever else you wanted to.
  • Place in the freezer until the topping has set. Remove from freezer, cut into squares with a knife or break apart with your hands. Store in the fridge.
