Peanut Butter cups are my kind of thing. Seriously, I always ask my kids to stock up on them on Halloween. I love the sweet and salty combo. So, I thought to myself, why not try and make them with tahini? Tahini goes with everything, right? I’m not entirely sure what took me so long to come up with this idea…but I am so glad I did. The result was even better than expected! 🙂If you’re anything like me, it’s going to be hard to eat just one of these Halvah Cups.


Dark chocolate: You can use any chocolate you like; use dark dairy-free chocolate chip for a vegan version. 

Tahini: Made with 100% sesame seeds ground into a paste. Tahini here adds a satisfying richness and a gentle, nutty, savory taste that pairs so well with chocolate.

Honey: For extra sweetness.

How to Store Halvah Cups?

Once your halvah cups have frozen, I suggest transferring them out of the muffin tin and into an airtight container. You can keep them frozen or move them to the refrigerator.
