I really like halva, but to be honest, I like chocolate just a little bit more. By combining these two in this delicious cookie, I started to love halva even more.
200 g milk chocolate bar, break it into small pieces
300 g halva
4 tbsp milk
30 g butter
200 g wholemeal biscuit, finely ground
150 g unsalted pistachios, finely ground
Mixing bowl (larger than the saucepan)
1. Melt the milk chocolate au bain-marie (in a mixing bowl over a pan of boiling water).
2. Divide 200 g halva into small pieces and roll out 16 small balls.
3. Add the milk and butter to the melted chocolate, stir well and allow to cool. Mix in the wholemeal biscuit and the rest of the halva so it becomes a firm dough. Roll out sixteen balls with this dough. Push a small halva ball in each of this larger dough balls and make them into a nicely round ball again. Roll them through the ground pistachios.
