For the seven days of Passover and the Feast of Unleavened Bread, Jewish people forgo all chametz (leaven)—just like their ancestors did when God delivered the Children of Israel from slave master Pharaoh. With bread, cake, pastry, pasta and even rice off limits for a week, matzah becomes a daily staple. Over generations the Jewish people have perfected the art of turning the humble unleavened flatbread into all kinds of culinary delights. Delicious chametz-free delicacies range from crispy French toast for breakfast, savory matzah brei for brunch and matzah lasagna for dinner. One of the most delectable Passover indulgences is Matzah Toffee Crunch. This sweet treat is the ideal marriage of textures and tastes. From the satisfying snap of the flatbread to the buttery crunch of the toffee and the creamy caress of chocolate, this goes perfectly with coffee or as a Passover desert.
