Matzo-Almond Croccante

Matzo-Almond Croccante

Try this artful Italian brittle for Passover.


  • Nonstick vegetable oil spray
  • 1/3 cup sliced almonds, lightly toasted
  • 5 ounces semisweet or bittersweet chocolate (do not exceed 72% cacao), melted
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons coarse sea salt (such as Maldon)

Recipe Preparation

  • Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper; coat with nonstick spray. Place matzo on sheet in a single layer, breaking as needed and overlapping slightly, leaving no gaps.

  • Stir sugar, margarine, honey, and 1/4 cup water in a heavy saucepan over low heat until sugar dissolves. Increase heat to medium-high and boil without stirring, occasionally swirling pan and brushing down sides with a wet pastry brush, until caramel is a deep amber color, 13–15 minutes. Pour caramel evenly over matzo. Immediately sprinkle almonds over. Let cool.

  • Drizzle melted chocolate over caramel. Sprinkle cayenne and salt over. Let stand until chocolate sets, about 30 minutes. Break into pieces.
