  • If you're baking the brittle not during Passover, then go nuts (literally) with the toppings you use: chopped nuts, pecans, peanut butter chips, vanilla... it all works. Keep experimenting
  • If stored properly in an airtight container, the Matzo toffee crunch pieces can be stored for as long as a week, meaning for the entire Passover!
