Until recently, I never realised that my suburb had a high Jewish population. It shouldn’t have been much of a surprise- the mainstream supermarkets had kosher sections and there is a bakery which prides itself on authentic bagels for $1.20…..and I just thought it was because ‘bagels’ and ‘Australia’ aren’t typically correlated.

After being informed of this amazing news (I may or may not have spent every lunchtime in NYC partying up solo in a Jewish deli and stuffing my face) I hit up the store and bought a random assortment of kosher goods- pickles, deli meat and matzah crackers– the latter being something I’d never tried before but looked like tasty crackers.

Tasty crackers it was not.

They say looks can be deceiving. These crackers are deceiving. I thought they would be delicious, salty and crispy- However, it made me seriously consider cardboard to be appetising.

Now, I am NOT one to waste food- and instead of just dousing it in vegemite and butter, I decided to recreate a classic my mum used to make Niki for her birthday parties (yet never mine…)– A simple No Bake Caramel Slice– The concept of layering crispbread crackers, caramel sauce and topping it with baking chocolate.

I opted to give it a healthy spin and by healthy I mean not using canned caramel and store bought cooking chocolate. If you want an easier (and fuss free!) alternative, simply use any caramel and any chocolate. For those of you wanting to take the extra step- Do it. It’s delicious, satisfying and healthy for the mind, healthy for the soul and healthy…to make yourself popular in the workplace.

This guilt free recipe is so adaptable- They are vegan and gluten free and much lower in sugar than traditional caramel slice. The crisp bread used is high in fiber and a much better option than classic crisp breads. 

Don’t forget the sea salt. Don’t eat Matzah Crackers plain.

Ingredients

  • 125 grams crispbread crackers of choice I used Ogran Essential Fiber Crispbread
  • Homemade caramel sauce see below
  • Homemade dark chocolate see below
  • Sea salt for topping
  • Homemade caramel sauce:*
  • 1 cup coconut sugar or dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 water
  • 2 T coconut oil or butter
  • sea salt

Homemade dark chocolate

Instructions

  • Layer a large baking tray or cookie sheet with 1 layer of tin foil and 1 layer of baking paper. Cover evenly with the plain crackers at set aside.
  • Make the caramel sauce by heating a saucepan with the water and sugar until it begins to boil. Ensure you stir the mixture constantly. Add the sea salt and coconut oil (or butter) and continue stirring on medium heat until it thickens and remove from the heat.
  • Pour the caramel sauce over the crackers until they are all evenly covered. Grind course sea salt over it and set aside.
  • Make the dark chocolate by heating the coconut oil in the saucepan until melted. Add the vanilla essence and slowly sift in the cocoa powder and stir very well until fully incorporated.
  • Pour the chocolate sauce over the crackers and caramel sauce evenly and add more salt. Refrigerate for 1-2 hours, or until it firms up completely. Break the caramel slice into rough pieces.

Notes

The dark chocolate layer is just that- 100% dark chocolate. I found that the 100% dark chocolate was perfect to complement the sweet caramel layer. If you are not a fan of dark chocolate, feel free to add sweetener/sugar to taste.
* I often double the batch because I like thick caramel and I use larger crackers

    1. The day I find coconut sugar is the day I am making that caramel sauce! yum!

      We don’t have any cities big enough in Scotland to have cultural/ heritage areas! Wish we had a middle eastern area though – grilled meats, dates and baba ghanoush… That would be awesome!

    2. I love this recipe! I want to make it for My family.i guess brown sugar will work too? And some other kind of crisp bread I guess.
      We got to try Matzah crackers in elementary school. It’s sooo bland and not even crunchy! But a nice experience in a way…
      Childhood birthday staple? Um I think simple marbled cake and cheesecake since this was/is my favourite (only my mum’s:-) )

    3. How have I never thought to put chocolate like this on top of crackers!?! Genius, sir! I’m a major bitter chocolate person so I can def see where the 100% dark would be best. But also how have you never heard of matzah…. aren’t you and Davs like friends.

    4. Dark chocolate and caramel – perfect combo!

      I’m with Lauren on the party rings, those things were awesome. That and chocolate cake, obviously. Although I’m pretty sure one of my favourite parts of every party was getting my party bag to take home full of toys and treats haha!

    5. Oh these look awesome, especially considering Matzah crackers don’t have much of a taste. Nice way to turn them into something tasty 😉 The neighborhood I’m living in at the moment isn’t known for anything that I know of, but the one where I work is Jewish central for Pittsburgh. It’s pretty cool, and they have amazing food that I love to take advantage of for lunch 🙂

    6. Matzah crackers are indeed bland, dry and awful. Good work with making them into something tasty! I am Jewish and of course all of my supermarkets cater to and feature Jewish/kosher foods (beyond being a religious thing, Jewish delicacies are totally a culture thing)..Long Island/New York is known for it’s large Jewish population..Which were your favorite kosher delis when you were in the city? You must miss our bagel stores as well.

    7. HAHAHAHA this is amazing! I never understood why anyone liked matzah. I always assumed it was because I was forced to eat it for a week every year and those that actually enjoyed it, weren’t Jewish. A wonderful way to turn it into something delicious 🙂

    8. One of my sorority sisters is Jewish and she brought us Matzah crackers. I’m with you, they are nastttty.

    9. You had me at salted caramel…yum! I think I’ve tried Matzah crackers out of a box and if memory serves right, I really liked them! What I do remember with certainty, however, is food from my birthday parties back in the day. Party ring biscuits (think colorful frosting), mini heart-shaped pizzas and sausage rolls were a few favorites!

      1. Oh Khushboo. I hope you were either drunk or really hungry when you ate those crackers to really like them!

        SAUSAGE ROLLS. I’ll let you in on a secret- I’m working on a healthy version of it 😉

    10. it made me seriously consider cardboard to be appetising. Hahahahaaaaa. I love you.
      100% dark chocolate, yessss!! Love it – and I bet it’s delicious with caramel!!

      Off topic: I’m so sorry I am missing all the Sunday link ups since MONTHS. BUT i just can’t get my brain together on weekends (too much booze?) to write a post and the rest of the week is craziness. Do you accept an apology in Lindt chocolate?

      1. YES- seriously, because the caramel is sweet, it makes the dark chocolate even better!

        DON’T APOLOGISE. Seriously. You stupid penguin- I’m glad your out LIVING. GO.

        I expect Lindt chocolate regardless.

    11. Oh hello healthy snackage. I went to a Jewish deli in New York with my Dad and had a sandwich the size of my face – it was insanely big but obviously really good. Party staple as a kid was biscuits called party rings – they were at every single party without fail. Before I moved out to the burbs I lived in Brixton in London which had loads of Jamaican food. We had a restaurant 2 minutes from my house that had the most insanely delicious food – jerk chicken, plantains, rice and peas – omg it was so good.

    12. you kill meeee! I actually have an open box of matzah at my place because my mother forced it upon C and I. There’s a reason we only eat that crap 8 days a year. Although my mother who cannot stand wasting food will make matzah brei (look it up) in the middle of the summer. She’s something else….I’m half asleep at the airport. Boarding! Adios xoxoxoxo

        1. I love matzo brei…and I also like matzo with butter spread on top, then sprinkled with salt. Entirely different than the cardboard it is when eaten plain.

    13. I tried Matzah crackers once and it wasn’t for me. Anything with chocolate, however, I can get on board with. This looks pretty good and thanks for sharing as always. Your recipes are simple and delicious looking.

    14. I’m not sure if I’ve ever had Matzah crackers before… but I’ve definitely had some crisp breads that I wasn’t too keen on. Chocolate and caramel make anything edible though…. and so does almond butter. Which I need right now. Thank goodness it’s almost time for breakfast — maybe I’ll even add chocolate 😉
