Anyways, last year I remember being really disappointed that I couldn't buy anything from the many bake sales that happened at my high school during the week. But, one beautiful tuesday afternoon, I wandered down and lo and behold they were selling this amazingly delicious matzo dessert!
Now, bark is traditionally a chocolate or caramel base with other things stirred in (like pretzel, candy canes) and chopped into pieces. A deconstructed dish is when you take some complete dish and take apart the various pieces to reuse them. So you maintain the essential ingredients of a dish and use them differently, but still together. Take a taco, for example - rather than having just the classic taco, you could fried the tortilla put the beans on the side and make a salad from the other ingredients and call it deconstructed. This is deconstructed because rather than crumbling the matzo and caramel into the bark, you use the matzo as a base and caramel as a glue.
Oven Temp - 350
Prep Time - 10 minutes
Bake Time- 15 minutes
Another great thing? 4 ingredients!
3/4 cups butter
3/4 brown sugar
4-5 pieces of matzo
1 1/2 cups chocolate
anything else to top (I used sliced almonds and coconut)
.Begin by lining a baking sheet with tin foil. Preheat oven to 350. Melt butter in a saucepan. Whisk in sugar, whisking constantly over medium-high heat for 3-5 minutes.
It will bubble lightly. Pour evenly over the matzo.
Bake at 350 for about 10-15 minutes, until caramel starts to bubble.
Remove from oven. Sprinkle with chocolate chips. Let sit for about 5 minutes.
Chocolate should be melted by now. Gently spread with knife.
Sprinkle with any extra topping.
Let cool and then chop into bite-sized snacks! Yum!
