Unrecipe of the Week: Marbled Matzo Brittle

April 14, 2014

Here is a simple, yet delicious version  of the matzo brittle we have posted previously. It has all the properties of the perfect confection. It’s a little bit salty, a little bit crunchy and a little bit sweet. And did I mention it has chocolate? What’s not to love?

Marbled Matzoh Brittle:

Line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil and cover it with parchment paper. If you skip this step, you will be scrubbing for a long, long time. Trust us on this!

Line the pan with sheets of matzo.

In a large saucepan, heat 2 sticks of butter, and 1 cup of brown sugar. Stir constantly with a wooden spoon until it comes to a boil and blends together. If it looks separated, keep stirring. Stir for couple of  minutes or so until it forms caramel. Pour the caramel over the matzo, and smooth it with a spatula.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 10-12 minutes until the caramel is golden in color, and bubbling. Don’t let it burn!

In the meantime, melt 1 1/2 cups of white chocolate chips. Place the melted white chocolate into a pastry bag. (see our tip for doing this here.)

Remove the matzoh from the oven. Sprinkle it with semi-sweet chocolate chips and allow them to soften. Use a spatula to spread the chocolate evenly across the matzoh.

Using the pastry bag  pipe the white chocolate in a zig zag pattern across the matzoh in both directions. Don’t be too worried about precision. Use a skewer, or the tip of a paring knife to smear the white chocolate, forming a marble effect. Alternatively, drizzle the white chocolate onto the matzoh with a spoon, and then use the above technique to marbelize it.

Sprinkle the matzoh lightly with sea salt.

Pop the pan into the refrigerator, and chill until the chocolate is firm.
Using a very sharp knife, slice the chilled matzoh into squares, and enjoy! (Don’t forget to share!)

Caramelized

October 18, 2012

What’s not to love about caramel? It’s rich and adds a luxurious texture to everything; including clothing.

For spring 2013, designers showed caramel colored leathers that as crave worthy as their namesake sweet.

Akris showed head to toe caramel leather.

Both Fendi and Billy Reid paired their leather back to crisp white shirts.

Burberry went pants free with their short leather trench style jacket in new proportions.

Luxury leather goods maker Hermes layered a leather vest and cotton trench over white shorts.

As you start to develop your fall wardrobe, think about adding a little caramel leather in clothing or accessories. It’s an investment that will take you through the entire year.
