Matzoh Bark – Chocolate Peppermint and Peanut Butter Banana

OK, I admit it, there is absolutely nothing local about this treat.  But I realized that I promised the recipe, so here it is… This version is adapted from one by Zoe Francois.  I made 1 1/2 times her recipe for caramel and doubled the number of trays.  I also decided to make one tray a peanut butter/chocolate mix – I still used the same amount of chips per tray.

We first made a version of this with my sister-in-law Ginny, and the girls loved it! It is so sweet and rich I have refused to make them, but this year I decided to treat everyone with these for our seder dessert.

Matzoh Bark – Chocolate Peppermint and Peanut Butter Banana

5 – 6 matzohs

3 sticks of butter or margarine

1 1/2 cups light brown sugar, packed.

2 cups chips (I used a combination of white, dark and milk chocolate for one tray and peanut butter and semi-sweet for the other)

Crushed peppermints

Crushed banana chips


Preheat the oven to 350F.

Line 2 rimmed  baking sheets with foil, spray with cooking spray.  Lay out the matzohs to cover the trays in a single layer.

Melt the butter and brown sugar in a sauce pot over medium high heat, whisking continually until it starts to thicken.

Pour the caramel over the matzoh, spread it out with a spatula and bake for 12-15 minutes.

Meanwhile, crush the peppermint candies (or get your daughter to do it:)).
