A special treat for every Passover is matzo candy.
Another classic around here is the matzo song: 20 Things to Do With Matzah (Yeah, it’s silly.)
I have yet to try the matzo tea that the song suggests…
But I can vouch for this matzo candy.
This is a healthier version of the typical matzo candy recipe, but I like it more than any of my previous attempts. It features honey instead of sugar, and coconut oil instead of butter. It’s unleavened deliciousness for sure!
- 3-4 salted matzo squares (I used 3½)
- 2 Tbs coconut oil
- ¼ cup honey
- ½ tsp vanilla
- ½ cup semi-sweet mini chocolate chips, divided
- ¼ cup roasted peanuts
- Heat the coconut oil in a saucepan over medium-low heat until melted. Stir in the honey and vanilla until combined.
- Line a large, rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Arrange the matzo squares on the tray, breaking them as needed to fit.
- Coat both sides of each matzo piece in the honey mixture and place on the parchment paper.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 5 minutes. The caramel should be bubbling on the tray and the matzo golden. Be careful not to overcook.
- Sprinkle ¼ cup of chocolate chips (or more!) on the matzo pieces. Let sit for 5 minutes. Spread the melted chocolate evenly on the matzo.
- Sprinkle with remaining ¼ cup of chocolate chips and peanuts if desired. (I like to spread the chocolate chips around a bit to coat them in the melted chocolate and then sprinkle on the peanuts.)
- Place in the freezer or refrigerator until the chocolate is hardened.
- Break in pieces and store in the refrigerator.
