No confection defies description like halva: dense yet flaky, creamy yet crunchy, sliceable yet spreadable. While the word “halva” can refer to a number of different sweets around the world, arguably the most popular version is tahini-based halva, a dense, semi-soft solid sweet that can be sliced and eaten, or flaked into airy, melt-in-your-mouth crumbles. This classic flavor of halva showcases the rich nuttiness of sesame in a versatile, ready-to-eat form. Aromatic vanilla adds a light sweetness that enhances tahini's creamy quality and tempers the natural bitterness of the sesame paste. We dare you not to eat it all straight off the spoon.
Los Angeles-based company Hebel & Co makes its small-batch, wonderfully textured halva by hand using our favorite brand of tahini, Soom Tahini. Halva is often eaten on its own as a candy or spread on toast, but you can also crumble it over oatmeal or fold it into such desserts as homemade ice cream, brownies or cookie dough.
