Take out and immediately spread the chocolate and as it begins to melt again. Spread it over the matzoh entirely Sprinkle the Almonds Let stand until room temperature Place in freezer for a minimum of 1 hour or all week To serve remove the brittle and carefully cover it because the only way it will break is when you hit it with the bottom of a pot or with a mallet/hammer
