Here’s a real simple take on one of the world’s most popular sweets. A lot of people think of the Middle East when they think halvah, but this dessert is also found throughout Asia, Africa, and Europe.

These chocolate halvah fudge bars get their characteristic flavor from the tahini butter. Like lots of raw vegan confections, all the sweetness comes from simple, natural dates. Add some cocounut butter and some cacao and you’re off to the races. These tasty bars are another testament to the epicurean heights that can be reached with only four simple ingredients.

For those with a busy schedule, you can make a large batch and keep a stockpile of halvah in the freezer for a hectic week. They make a great mid-morning snack to help you make it to lunch with a natural energy boost.

  1. Place the pitted dates in a bowl and cover with water. Depending on the freshness of the dates they may need to soak for up to an hour. You want them to be soft and malleable and Drain the dates and hang onto the soaking liquid.
  2. In a food processor, pulse the dates until smooth, adding reserved liquid if needed. The mixture should be creamy.
  3. Next add the coconut butter, tahini and cacao powder and continue to pulse until everything is combined into a sticky/creamy mixture.
  4. Press the mixture evenly into a square pan using a spatula or spoon. The fudge should be about 1 inch thick.
  5. Freeze for about 3 hours. To serve, thaw a bit, and cut into squares.
