Marbled Halvah

August 8, 2008

This high-calcium treat is common in Middle Eastern kitchens.  Made mostly of tahini (sesame paste), this is a great high-energy snack! I’ve created a version here with a chocolate swirl, but you can also leave it plain, or add chopped pistachios or dried fruits if you prefer.
