Matzo 'Crack' S'mores

Because the Passover Seder is a meat meal, the recipe below uses kosher for Passover margarine. Having tried the recipe with both kosher for Passover margarine and butter, the butter does give a richer flavor, but note that butter is only acceptable if you plan to serve it with a dairy meal.

While saltine or soda cracker bark has been around for ages, Marcy Goldman, author of A Treasury of Jewish Holiday Baking, is widely recognized as the original Matzo Crack or Matzo Crunch creator. This recipe is adapted from Marcy's recipe and my own Chocolate 'Crack' recipe.
