Kotecki Krunch – Passover Style

Kotecki Krunch is a legendary recipe within the Kotecki family. It only comes out around special occasions: holidays, March Madness and beach vacations. There are special orders like when Debbie made it for every person at our wedding – and every guest exclaimed how good/addicting it was! You can never have too much, but since it only comes out a couple times a year, you want to savor every bite.

The original recipe uses saltine crackers. But a few years ago around Passover, Debbie made it for me using matzo. So in the spirit of Passover and making a recipe handed down two generations in my family (from mother-in-law to daughter-in-law!), I tried my hand at making this family recipe.

1 column saltine crackers (or 2-3 sheets matzo)
2 sticks butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 package semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 400 and line large baking sheet with foil
1. Layer saltines or matzo in one layer on baking sheet
2. Melt butter and brown sugar in small saucepan. Bring to a boil and keep boiling for 3 minutes, stirring constantly
3. Pour mixture evenly over crackers.
4. Bake in oven for 4-6 minutes until bubbly and golden brown. Keep your eye on the oven since it burns easily
5. Remove from oven and sprinkle chocolate chips evenly over top. As they begin to melt, spread chips over top with spatula.
6. Place entire cookie sheet in fridge for at least a few hours and up to overnight

Voila! Yay family traditions!

  2. You get to access the pictures from anywhere and any day.

    This is a very valuable tool when shooting wildlife photography.
    The scientific background of photography shows that the use of it for exploring the natural
    world was exploited by big businesses.

  3. Additionally, you can try editing your photos to include depth of field.

    The best place to get inexpensive props are rummages and thrift stores.
    The battery life with heavy use is about 2-3 weeks and it takes 4 “AAA” batteries.

  4. Such photographers are well known for the services
    that they provide. This is obviously due to the psychological impact that viewing
    such images has on the people that view them. There really is something for everyone at this business.
