Matzo Roca! Matzo Like You’ve Never Had It Before!



Chag Sameach!  Are you sick of matzo yet?  Well I have the answer…Matzo Roca! This stuff is so delish that I literally have non-MOT friends awaiting it every year when Passover rolls around.  I just whipped up my second batch this week. And best of all, it’s super easy! It’s one of my all time favorite recipes courtesy of my friend Renée.

Matzo Roca Steps



  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 4-6 boards of matzo (enough to cover cookie sheet)
  • toppings – walnuts, almonds, pecans, coconut


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Cover a large rimmed cookie sheet with foil and spread out 4-6 boards of matzo to cover the entire sheet, breaking or slightly overlapping as necessary.
  3. In a small saucepan, bring the butter and sugar to a boil. Pour over matzo and then use spatula to spread.
  4. Bake for 10 minutes.
  5. Remove from oven and sprinkle with chocolate chips.
  6. Let stand a few minutes until chips are mostly melted and spread easily; using spatula spread to cover all the matzo.
  7. Sprinkle on toppings, taking care to press into chocolate.
  8. Refrigerate on cookie sheet until completely cooled.
  9. Break apart and serve.


So break out another box of matzo and get baking! Happy Passover!
