Ingredients

  • 4 1/2 sheets unsalted matzos
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 1/4 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup chopped toasted almond (with skin)
  • 1 pinch sea salt
  • 1 pinch kosher salt

Method

Lay matzos on foil-lined rimmed baking sheet, breaking to cover sheet completely. Set aside.

In saucepan, bring butter with sugar to boil over medium-high heat; boil until slightly thickened, 2 to 3 minutes. Pour over matzos, spreading with offset spatula.

Bake in 325°F (160°C) oven until bubbly and golden, about 7 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes.

Sprinkle with chocolate chips; let stand until melted, about 2 minutes. Spread over matzos. Sprinkle with almonds and salt. Refrigerate until chocolate is firm, about 1 hour. Break into shards. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate in airtight container for up to 3 days.)
