This matzo or saltine toffee is incredibly easy to make and I don’t know a single person who doesn’t love it!


Units Scale

2 sticks butter

1 c packed dark brown sugar

1 t vanilla

pinch of salt

12 oz chocolate chips

1/2 c nuts finely chopped (optional)

36 Saltines or Matzo pieced together to fit on a 15 x 10 pan


Preheat oven to 375.

Line a 15 x 10 pan with foil. Butter lightly. Line with saltines or matzoh.

Bring butter and sugar to a boil over medium high heat. Boil for 4 minutes. Take off heat and stir in vanilla and salt. It will bubble. Make sure mixture is well mixed and cohesive. I usually beat this with a whisk to make sure everything is incorporated.

Pour butter mixture  over saltines evenly. Bake for 5 minutes.It will bubble, but do not let this burn! Take out of oven and immediately cover with chocolate chips. As they melt, spread  them evenly over your toffee. Top with finely chopped nuts if you choose. Refrigerate until cool. Break into pieces.

Take a bite and remember how sweet life is.
