Florida Dessert Recipe

Matzo Caramel Pecan Squares

4 matzos
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1 cup margarine
1 cup chopped pecans
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Spray bottom of a cookie sheet that has sides generously with vegetable spray. Line pan with matzos, breaking to fit. In medium saucepan over medium-high heat, combine margarine, brown sugar and pecans. Bring to a boil, stirring with a wooden spoon. Reduce heat to medium and boil 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Pour over matzos. Bake at 350 degrees F for 7-8 minutes. Remove from oven and immediately sprinkle with chocolate chips. Return to oven and bake 2-3 minutes longer to melt chocolate. Do not over bake; they can easily burn. Remove from oven. Let cool completely. Cut into squares and refrigerate to set.
