Gluten Free Matzo Candy

*Originally posted March 24, 2013

As the lone Irish girl who teaches at the Jewish school, I feel that I must post a recipe for Passover. They gave us a list of foods we can bring in for lunch, and it looks I will be enjoying quinoa and cheese sticks for a week. But, the good news is, gluten free matzo is way better than real matzo, at least from what I can remember. The only place I have found it is Whole Foods. If you are gluten-free and you don’t live near a Whole Foods, I’m really sorry. That must make it tougher than it already is.

INGREDIENTS

  • 12 gluten free matzo crackers
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 (12 ounce) bag semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts 

    DIRECTIONS

    1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line two baking sheets with aluminum foil. Place the matzo crackers in a single layer on the lined baking sheets, breaking to fit, if necessary.
    2. Bring the butter and brown sugar to a boil in a heavy bottomed saucepan over medium heat. Continue to cook, stirring constantly, until thick and smooth, about 3 minutes. Pour the hot sugar mixture over the matzo, and spread evenly with a heat proof spatula.
    3. Place the caramel topped matzo in the preheated oven for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and evenly sprinkle the chocolate chips on top. Return pans to oven to melt chocolate, about 1 minute. Smooth melted chocolate to completely cover the caramel. Sprinkle with the chopped walnuts. Chill in refrigerator for 20 minutes, or until set. Break into small pieces to serve.
