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. I’m Jewish and tasty crackers they are not!!!! Unless you slather them in grassfed butter and dust them with sea salt! Or make these bars, holy yum!

      1. Okay…..sea salt and butter. I’m giving this a savoury twist. You genius, you. Mussel Toff.

    2. I’ve never had Matzah crackers before…although it sounds like I’m not missing out on much. Of course, adding caramel, chocolate and sea salt is going to make anything better 😉

    3. I had the exact same experience with Matzah crackers! It was SUCH a disappointment. But I can eat anything with caramel and chocolate. I love how you call these healthy because they’re homemade. I totally agree! Health for the mind is just as important, and you’ve got all those healthy fats from the coconut, not to mention that powerhouse of antioxidants in the cocoa powder…sheesh, you could practically consider these breakfast! 😛

      1. This WOULD be an epic breakfast option……it may have been in fact a starter to my oats. Oops.

    4. Oh my gosh Arman!! I need this in my life…like right now! These are amazing! I could probably (and easily) eat an entire pan of these all by myself in one sitting! I think I tried Matzah crackers years ago and I’m pretty sure I ate them plain and no, they were not all that good. For something like this though, I’m sure they work perfectly!

      1. Thank you Holly- you may certainly eat an entire pan- it fuels little babies…yes.

    5. This makes me want a caramel and chocolate grilled sandwich. I think I’ve found my lunch! Looks delicious!

      1. Wow. Ellie- that sounds absolutely sinfully delicious. I hope you rectified it!

    6. OH MY GOSH my mom makes these for Christmas!! They are so so so good and I can practically taste them just looking at your pictures.

    7. Being Jewish, I can say you have not lived until you have had my Dad’s fried matzah!!! My dad is no longer alive but I am sure others can get close! 😉 It was not healthy but it was delish!!!!!!

      1. Fried Matzah sounds absolutely delicious- God bless your father for coming up with such a creative twist!

    8. Ohhh yummyu yummy! I’ve made something similar in the past called “Christmas Crack” and it was DIVINE. I can only imagine how good your version is with homemade eerrrrrything!

      1. Thanks Christine! Hahaha Christmas Crack….What a great title to get in trouble for 😉

    9. YES! My best friend in grade school was Jewish and her mom made these all the time. Totally forgot about them!!!

    10. When I was a kid I actually liked matzoh crackers but now they are way too bland. I have tried to coat them with almond butter and slices of banana but they still leave something to be desired. This is a brilliant idea! I hate wasting food. I have made something similar except you use saltine crackers and make a caramel with brown sugar and butter. Then you simply throw a load of chocolate chips on top and melt it (briefly) in the oven. Spread, add slivered almonds and voila! But a matzoh cracker crust sounds much cooler.

      When you were in New York did you ever try a knish? Being the potato devotee that you are I think those would be right up your alley. Even I, confirmed potato disliker, thought knishes were mighty tasty.

      Hope your weekend is terrific!

      1. I never did- but now when I go back I’ll need to! Wow, that version with the added nuts sounds delicious- I’ll try that out next time!

    11. It’s almost 9 on Friday night (I”m super lame but it’s ok because I’m old) and I wish I had some of those carmel treats!!!!

    12. Salted caramel sauce and chocolate are essentially perfection and when turning it into a portable treat? Win.
      For me, ‘Kalter Hund’ [look up the literal translation and be prepared to laugh] was a must at every childhood birthday. A chocolate frosting type spread layered with shortbread – far from healthy but the best.
      “to make yourself popular in the workplace” <- I like that we think in similar ways here. Coworker of the month for bringing treats like this? Absolutely.

      1. O.m.g those look delicious- I’ll have to get my German friend to send me some!
