Topped with nuts, this is extremely addictive!You can use gluten-free matzos to make this into a gluten-free matzo crack. This is what I do for myself! Gluten-free matzos are more brittle, so you'll end working with more broken sheets to assemble your full sheet - that's totally fine!Usevegan chocolate chips and coconut oil to make this vegan.Omit the toffee and use natural chocolate chips for a version that's free of refined sugars.

Preheat oven to 350F/125C. Set an oven rack in the middle of the oven, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a tinfoil.
Cover baking sheet with one layer of matzo sheets. You will need to break some matzah sheets into smaller pieces in order to completely cover the pan.
In a saucepan set to medium heat, melt butter and brown sugar, stirring constantly. Once mixture comes to a boil, allow to cook for 3 more minutes, until foamy, thick and mixture pulls away from the sides of the pan. Remove from stovetop.
Pour the butter and sugar mixture over the matzo sheets. Spread it with spatula to ensure it gets everywhere in an even layer.
Bake toffee-covered matzo in 350F oven and bake for 15 minutes, checking every so often to make sure it doesn’t burn. Reduce heat to 325 if it’s browning around the edges.
After 15 minutes, once the butter and sugar mixture have bubbled up and are golden brown, remove baking sheet from the oven. Sprinkle chocolate chips over toffee mixture immediately. Let sit for 5 minutes to melt. Once melted, spread chocolate chips evenly with a spatula over the toffee mixture.
Top with coloured sprinkles, nuts or toppings of your choice. Allow to cool and harden for about 2 hours. Break into pieces and enjoy.
