  • 4-6 gluten-free matzo sheets
  • 1 cup (226 g) unsalted butter
  • 1 cup (200 g) firmly packed brown sugar
  • teaspoon (0.75 g) kosher or fine sea salt
  • ¾ cup (135 g) semisweet or milk chocolate chips, roughly chopped
  • cup (41 g) chopped pistachios, optional


  • Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with foil and then cover foil with parchment paper. Place matzo on top of parchment, filling the baking sheet. Break extra pieces to fit any spaces.
  • Combine butter, brown sugar, and salt in a large saucepan and cook over medium heat.
  • Stir constantly until mixture comes to a boil, then continue to stir for 3 minutes.
  • Remove mixture from heat and pour evenly over all the matzo crackers. Place baking sheet in the oven for 15 minutes and reduce heat to 350°F. Watch carefully. If caramel seems to be browning too quickly, lower heat to 325°F.
  • Remove from oven and immediately sprinkle with chopped chocolate. Let stand for 5 minutes to allow chocolate to melt, then gently spread over the caramel mixture.
  • If desired, sprinkle chopped pistachios over crackers.
  • Freeze for at least 30 minutes and then break into pieces before serving.

      Yes, if you use dairy free buttery sticks and dairy free chocolate chips (Enjoy Life makes dairy-free ones).

    I have sent money for gluten free cookbooks and never received anything back. Is this on the level?
