- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
- Line a 9-inch by 13-inch baking pan with aluminum foil. Make sure the foil goes up and over the sides of the baking pan. Lightly grease the pan with Becel Original®. Cover the surface of the pan with matzo boards. Break the matzo boards to fit the pan, but do not overlap.
- Melt Becel Original® in a medium sauce pan set over medium high heat. Add the light brown sugar, and whisk until the sugar is completely dissolved. Bring the mixture to a gentle boil, about 2-3 minutes. Once gently boiling, pour mixture over the matzo boards. Use the back of a spoon or an offset spatula to spread in an even layer from corner to corner.
- Transfer the pan to the oven and bake for 5-10 minutes, or until bubbly. Remove the pan from oven and sprinkle chocolate chips on top. Wait for a few minutes to allow the chocolate to melt. Then spread in an even layer. Sprinkle dried fruit and nuts on top. Refrigerate until the chocolate is firm.
- Lift the chilled bark out of the pan using the aluminum foil overhang. Break bark into pieces before serving. Store leftovers in an airtight container.
