Belated Pesach Sheni Recipe
I don't know about you, but I still have leftover matzah (luckily, my husband will eat it all year round).
Because it was Pesach Sheni (aka: Redo Passover), I decided I would try and make something with matzah to commemorate the special day (it is a custom to eat matzah on Pesach Sheni). I searched the web for matzoh recipes, and found one that ROCKED THE HOUSE!
It's easy, tasty, and uses matzoh - you can't get much better than that.
If you, too, still have leftover matzoh, experiment for next year with this TOTALLY WORTH IT recipe from Epicurious:
MY TRADEMARK, MOST REQUESTED, ABSOLUTELY MAGNIFICENT CARAMEL MATZOH CRUNCH
An outstanding, unique, and easy confection. If you make only one thing at Passover, make this.
4-6 unsalted matzohs
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter or unsalted Passover margarine
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
3/4 cup coarsely chopped chocolate chips or semi-sweet chocolate
Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line a large (or two smaller) cookie sheet completely with foil. Cover the bottom of the sheet with baking parchment — on top of the foil. This is very important since the mixture becomes sticky during baking.
Line the bottom of the cookie sheet evenly with the matzohs, cutting extra pieces, as required, to fit any spaces.
In a 3-quart, heavy-bottomed saucepan, combine the butter or margarine and the brown sugar. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture comes to a boil (about 2 to 4 minutes). Boil for 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat and pour over the matzoh, covering completely.
Place the baking sheet in the oven and immediately reduce the heat to 350°. Bake for 15 minutes, checking every few minutes to make sure the mixture is not burning (if it seems to be browning too quickly, remove the pan from the oven, lower the heat to 325°, and replace the pan).
Remove from the oven and sprinkle immediately with the chopped chocolate or chips. Let stand for 5 minutes, then spread the melted chocolate over the matzoh. While still warm, break into squares or odd shapes. Chill, still in the pan, in the freezer until set.
**Malkah's additional tips: 1. You might want to add a pinch of salt to the ingredients at the beginning. 2. You can sprinkle chopped nuts or coconut on top of the matzahs before the chocolate is set to make it super fancy.
