Matzah Almond Squares

For those who celebrate Passover, I wanted to share a recipe for a yummy dessert.

Matzah Almond Squares

1 cup toasted almonds, chopped
1 cup matzah, broken into bite sized pieces
2 teaspoons salt
2 1/4 cups brown sugar
2 1/4 cups white sugar
1 1/3 cups water

In a large bowl, mix together the almonds, matzah and salt. Set aside. In a saucepan, combine the two sugars and water. Stir over low heat until the sugar is disolved. You want the sugar/water to reach 290 degrees.

Remove from heat and add in the matzah mix. Stir to mix.

Pour into a greased cookie sheet. Spread thinly. It takes about an hour to completely harden. Break into pieces.
