How To Make Chocolate and Hazelnut Matzo Toffee

This crisp matzo toffee makes sweet and crunchy candies with layers of roasted nuts, chocolate chips, and matzo crackers for delightfully baked treats.

Preparation: 10 minutes
Cooking: 15 minutes
Cool Time: 2 hours
Total: 2 hours 25 minutes



  • 4ozplain matzo crackers,(4 sheets)
  • 1cupmargarine,(8 oz)
  • 1cupbrown sugar
  • 12ozsemi-sweet chocolate chips,(1 bag)
  • 1cuproasted hazelnuts,chopped, pecans, walnuts, or almonds
  • 1tspflaky salt,optional


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum, then parchment. Place the matzo crackers on the baking sheet in a single layer, breaking 2 of the pieces so it all fits in the pan.

  2. In a medium saucepan, combine margarine and sugar over medium heat.

  3. Let the mixture come up to a boil, stirring occasionally, then continue to boil for about 3 minutes or until a candy thermometer measures at soft crack stage 270 to 289 degrees F.

  4. It takes about 10 to 11 minutes total for the mixture to get up to temperature, timing may vary depending on the size and thickness of your saucepan and the power of your stove.

  5. Pour the toffee mixture evenly over the matzo. Working quickly, use an offset spatula to spread it out in an even layer. Place the baking sheet in the oven, and bake for 4 to 5 minutes, or until the butter-sugar has become bubbly all over.

  6. Remove the matzo toffee from the oven and sprinkle the chocolate chips evenly over the top. Wait about 3 minutes for the chips to melt. Use an offset spatula to spread the chips out in an even layer over the toffee.

  7. Before the chocolate cools, sprinkle the toasted nuts and salt, if using, over the top. Tap the sheet pan against the counter a few times to help the nuts settle into the chocolate—this will help them adhere better when the toffee has set up.

  8. Let the toffee cool completely for about about 2 to 3 hours. Cut it into squares and serve. Enjoy!
