At Matis, their Chocolate Halva is made with a traditional family recipe dating back to 1898! A beloved confection in Greece and throughout the Middle East and Mediterranean, halva is made with crushed sesame seeds that are gently folded into hot caramel. Classically enjoyed flavoured with vanilla, chocolate, pistachios or almonds, halva is a sweet, often served alongside fresh fruit and other desserts. With a light nutty chocolate flavor and a melt-in-your mouth crumbly texture, this treat also makes a wonderful snack.
Enjoy Halva with some fresh bread, on a cracker, with a bowl of porridge, fresh fruits or grated over ice cream or frozen yogurt. Or add to your favorite cookie and baked goods recipes for an extra earthy, peanut-butter like flavor.
