Pistachio and Cranberry Studded Matzo Brittle by Spork FoodsDirections:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350°F.
  2. Place sheets of matzo on a lightly greased baking sheet. Set aside.
  3. In a small saucepan over medium-low heat, add margarine and cook until melted. Add raw cane sugar and whisk to create a caramel, about 2 minutes. Add cinnamon.
  4. Spread mixture evenly over matzo and place in the oven for 5-6 minutes, or until caramel mixture is bubbling.
  5. Smooth caramel mixture over matzo and evenly sprinkle chocolate on top. Place in the oven for 2-3 minutes to melt.
  6. Remove from the oven and spread chocolate with a spatula to smooth over matzo evenly.
  7. Top evenly with pistachios and cranberries. Turn oven off and place matzo in oven for an additional 2 minutes, to make brittle extra crisp.
  8. Place on the counter to cool for about 15 minutes.
  9. Once cool, refrigerate for 30 minutes to 1 hour to allow to firm up.
  10. Break into uneven pieces and serve.
