Peanut Butter and Chocolate Matzo Candy

Leave a comment

A recipe for delicious matzo toffee crunch candy inspired me to come up with this version that has more protein, healthier fat (from the peanut butter) and is even easier to make.

Peanut Butter and Chocolate Matzo Candy

2 sheets of matzo (white or whole wheat)

~ 1/2 cup peanut butter (preferably natural, chunky) 

~ 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (Trader Joes makes one that is parve)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil or parchment. 

Spread the peanut butter on the matzo and bake for 8- 10 minutes; keep an eye on it, you don’t want the PB or the matzo to burn. 

Turn off the oven. Sprinkle the chips on top of the hot matzo and put back into the oven (remember the oven is OFF) for about 8 minutes.

Remove from oven and spread the chocolate evenly over the matzos. BE CAREFUL, THE MATZO IS VERY HOT AT THIS POINT. Let cool so that chocolate hardens. Break into bite sized pieces.
