Attended my first offical Passover Seder at the Brown Residence last night. I've worked many a Passover Seders at the UW Hillel back in my catering days, but this is the first time I've had my butt in a seat participating in the entire thing. Lots of singing and reading. Forgot how nerve wracking it was to read aloud to a crowd of people. Luckily, I got through it fairly flawlessly. Go me and my second grade special reading class!
Brought a ton of Chateau wine with us - you're suppose to drink 4 glasses of wine throughout the Seder and you know I excelled at that! Also brough these matzo treats - can't come to a party without something yummy! I've made these before using graham crackers but figured it should be about the same with matzo and boy, was I right. Super delicious. Don't leave me in a room with these - hence why there isn't a picture.
Matzo Toffee Treats
1 c. butter (2 sticks)
1/2 c. brown sugar
4 large matzo crackers
3/4 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 c. chopped almonds
3/4 c. toasted coconut
Toast coconut in a 350 degree oven for approximately 10 minutes, stirring half way through. Take matzo crackers and arrange on a foil-lined baking sheet with sides touching.
Melt butter and brown sugar in a sauce pan on medium high until combined, reduce to low for two to three minutes until it becomes syrupy. Pour over matzo crackers in an even layer then sprinkle with almonds.
Bake in the oven for 12 minutes at 350 degrees until it bubbles. Remove from oven and sprinkle with chocolate chips, toasted cocount and sea salt.
Let cool for 1 hour then cut into pieces to serve.
