Happiness is...Matzah Rocca

It is Passover time, and that means an over abundance of Matzah.  What am I going to do with the other 4 boxes that come in the traditional Passover Matzah 5 Pack?  I can only eat so much plain Matzha.  I can only eat so many Matzah Balls.  Matzah Rocca anyone?  Matzah what?  Matzah Rocca.  It's like Almond Rocca on a bed of Matzah, and it is delicious!

Matzah Rocca

6 Matzah
1 1/2 c. Butter, 3 sticks
1 1/2 c. packed Brown Sugar
18 oz. (2 1/4 c.) Chocolate Chips, the mini chips work best if you can find them
1 1/2 c. toasted sliced Almonds, or any chopped toasted nut of choice
Kosher Salt ~or~ coarse Sea Salt

Preheat the oven to 400˚.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or greased aluminum foil.

Lay the 6 pieces of Matzah on the lined baking sheet.

Place the Butter and Brown Sugar in a heavy bottomed saucepan.

Bring the  Butter and Brown Sugar to a boil over medium-high; boil for 3 minutes, stirring constantly.

Working quickly, pour the now "toffee" over Matzah.


Spread the toffee evenly over the whole surface. 
Allow a few minutes for the toffee to set.

Bake for 9-11 minutes until toffee is caramelized and bubbly.

 Remove from the oven and immediately cover evenly with the Chocolate Chips.

Allow the Chocolate Chips to melt and then spread evenly over the entire tray.

While the chocolate is warm, sprinkle with a pinch of Kosher Salt and the sliced toasted Almonds.

Chill for at least an hour, keeping the baking sheet as level as possible. 
Break into pieces and serve. 
Can be enjoyed cold or at room temperature.
