Chocolate Matzo Brittle



  • 1 cup  dairy-free chocolate chips
  • 2 Tbsp.  agave nectar or maple syrup
  • Pinch of cinnamon
  • 2 matzos, broken into pieces slightly larger than bite-size
  • 1/3 to 1/2 cup  lightly toasted nuts (e.g., sliced or slivered almonds, chopped walnuts, pecans, or pistachios)
  • 1/2 cup  dark or golden raisins, dried cranberries, or other chopped dried fruit, such as apricots, mangoes, or pineapple


  • Line two large plates with wax paper or parchment.
  • Combine the chocolate chips, agave nectar, and cinnamon in a medium saucepan. Cook over low heat until smoothly melted. Remove from the heat.
  • Add the broken matzo. Stir to coat evenly with the chocolate. Spread in a more or less single layer onto two parchment- or wax paper–lined plates. Sprinkle the nuts and raisins over the top. Refrigerate for at least an hour before serving.
  • Just before serving, break up into large chunks and transfer to a serving platter.
