This is a great cookie/bar type of sweet to have around for lunches, impromptu gatherings, and to enjoy with a cup of tea or coffee any time of day.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Line a cookie or baking sheet (approx 12 X 17 inches) with foil and spray it with non-stick cooking spray.
Now line the foil with the matzo slices, breaking them up as needed to fit the pan from edge to edge. Doesn’t have to be perfect.
Heat the butter and sugar in a small saucepan on medium to medium-high heat just until it boils. Be sure it is well mixed together, then pour it all over the matzo, using a spatula to spread it.
Bake for about 10 minutes (it will be bubbling), turn the oven off and remove the matzo.
Now sprinkle the chocolate chips all over the matzo and return the pan to the oven for two minutes. This will melt the chips enough so you can easily spread them all over.
Remove after two minutes and spread the chips with a spatula or some type of spreading implement.
If you are using nuts, sprinkle the nuts and sea salt all over.
Refrigerate for at least an hour or until it is firm. Then you can break it apart into pieces, put on a serving tray and let your guests enjoy. You can also keep it in the refrigerator for several days or even freeze it for later use.
*You can toast nuts by placing on a baking sheet in a toaster oven or in a regular oven at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes. Keep an eye on them - they go from deliciously toasty to burnt rather quickly.
If you prefer more even pieces of matzo, remove the matzo intact, place on a cutting board and cut into small squares or whatever shapes you want.
