Dripping with chocolate and plenty of nuts, Andrew Zimmern’s toffee matzo is so good you’ll want it long after the holidays are over. Crispy, crunchy matzo provides the perfect base for rich and sweet brown sugar toffee, and using chocolate chips to melt on top makes this a quick and easy treat to whip up.

Hanukkah came earlier this year than any other I can remember. It's good for my wallet that it's a far ways off from Christmas, because we celebrate both in our house, but bad for my waistline that it's on top of Thanksgiving. I offered up potato pancakes and my grandmother's chopped liver for this column in past years, and there are a ton of recipes for the holiday week on andrewzimmern.com but this toffee matzo is very special. Our family friends the Golds shared this recipe with us a few years ago and I haven't stopped making it since. Not easy for a new dish to become a family favorite at holiday time, that's a tough lineup to crack, but this treat is an easy, simple mind-blower that makes for the perfect gift or potluck course. Or do as we do in our house and keep a big tin on hand for when guests come by. GET THE RECIPE >
