Passover Caramel Pecan Squares
4 plain matzos
1 C. margarine
1 C. brown sugar
1 C. pecans or walnuts, optional
1 C. parve chocolate chips
1/2 C. sliced almonds, optional
Heat oven to 350°F. Line 10 x 15-inch pan with tin foil. Grease it really well.
Fit plain matzos in pan, breaking them up if necessary.
In medium saucepan, cook margarine and brown sugar to about 234°F. on candy thermometer, stirring constantly. If using nuts, when sugar mixture reaches 234°F., remove pan from heat before adding chopped pecans or walnuts, if using. Pour brown sugar mixture over matzos.
Bake 15-20 minutes. Remove from oven; sprinkle with chocolate chips. Turn oven off; return to oven for 2 minutes to melt chips. Take out and spread chocolate chips to make smooth top. Sprinkle with sliced almonds, if desired. Immediately cut into squares (or triangles) and serve.
Makes 10 servings.
