Happy Friday and Happy Passover, and Easter weekend.  I am thrilled that this morning I heard lots of birds chirping away…Spring is here. Finally. Yes. Win#1.

I also had a great run, despite having a fight with my GPS watch that I cannot figure out, which you may or may not give a hoot about, but I finished just as the rain started to come down… and it felt like I was having a good day again. Win #2.

And people, I am happy to tell you that I have not one, but two giveaways lined up for the next few months, and I am tha-rilled to share them with you.  Veery exciting! Win #3.

Done winning. It is officially a great day, and I am going to share what will be the downfall of a healthy diet for the rest of the week- since Passover is a week long I will be indulging in lots of Matzah, and this little treat, I like to call in “Matzah Crack” and you will know why…:

I got this recipe from this version that I make in winter for Christmas, only with the Passover version, I use Matzah. Warning: It is not healthy or lowfat.  But it is homemade. Win#4?


Here’s the recipe:

Matzah Toffee


  • 6 matzah
  • 2/3 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup butter
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • nuts for sprinkling on top (optional)


Line a sheet pan with parchment.

Place the 6 matzah on the pan, laying flat and next to eachother like this:

Set this aside. In a medium, heavy bottomed pan, melt the butter and the sugar on a low/medium temperature until it reaches a thick, brown consistency and the two have come together. About 3 minutes.

Pour this evenly over the matzah. Spread evenly with a rubber spatula.

Place in the 400* oven and bake for 4-5 minutes, until bubbly.

Take out of the oven, and turn it off.

Sprinkle the chocolate chips evenly over the matzah

And let sit in the off-oven for 3 minutes.

Take out and spread the chocolate in an even layer with a rubber spatula. Sprinkle nuts on if desired.

Cool completely and roughly break into pieces.

Do you say matzo? I say matzah. I also say tomayto, not tomahto.  And potayto, not patatah like some Massachusetts folks. {lol}  It’s all good to me.
