Ever Passover I make family favorites and every year I also make new recipes that often become favorites. Honey matzoh brittle is a new recipe! From chopped liver and matzoh ball soup to brisket and chicken and lots of desserts check out our family Passover favorites!
I love cooking food for Passover.
Maybe it’s the change in seasons or just the fact that everyone may be coming home…whatever the case, I love the sense of peace and order when getting ready for Passover.
This year I tried a quick new snack that reminds me a lot of honey covered granola, only better.
No oats-only matzo farfel-which is really just a fancy name for crumbled matzoh. Feel free to crumble your own matzoh or if you don’t celebrate Passover and have no boxes of matzo on hand, crumbled saltines would most likely taste great, too.
Now that I’ve made this I see a myriad of possibilities for this matzo granola snack. Embellishing this with dried fruits, salted peanuts, a chocolate drizzle, extra salt, and who knows what, but those ideas for Passover snacks will have to wait for a later date.
This quick microwave recipe is one I found in the back of the Hot Bread Kitchen cookbook. I think you’ll like it, even if you don’t keep Passover. It makes the perfect snack for those drives to Grandma’s when the kids are hungry and you know dinner will awhile in coming.
It made the perfect snack for Manservant who loves the honey taste. It could become quite addicting but I hid it in the recesses of my just cleaned pantry. Hope I can find it again when everyone-well, almost everyone- arrives on Friday.
Check it out and check out some of my other foods for Passover that I conveniently listed in one spot. After all Seder means order and finding recipes each year is always a challenge!

Honey Crunch Matzo brittle is kind of a Jewish granola snack.
4 T butter
1/2 c honey
1/2 c sugar
1/4 t salt
3 c matzoh farfel or broken matzoh or saltines
1/2 c sliced almonds
1/2 c pecan halves or walnuts
Line a 10 x 15″ pan with parchment paper.
Combine butter, honey, sugar, and salt in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave on high until boiling and golden about 5-6 minutes, stirring after 2 1/2 minutes. Stir in matzoh pieces and nuts. Microwave about 2.5 minutes longer , check and then you may need to microwave up to 2.5 minutes longer or until everything is golden.
To test if this is ready have a cold glass of water handy. Drop a small spoonful into water. If it is ready, it will turn crisp. Transfer mixture to baking sheet and let it cool for a few minutes.
With wet hands, firmly press down into an even layer. Let stand until firm, about 1 hour. Store in an airtight container.
