If you have been following me for a while, you probably know by now that I am obsessed with Tahini. I use it pretty much on everything. I love the nutty flavor and the health benefits.

Cookies: Tea biscuits like Kedem or Petit Beurre are great for this recipe. Other options are Graham crackers, Digestive biscuits, and animal crackers.
Date Syrup: Date syrup, also called Silan, is a thick dark-brown, very sweet fruit syrup extracted from dates. It can be found online, at Trader Joe’s, and in Middle Eastern stores. I tried and liked a few brands (affiliate links): The Date Lady, Soom, and Trader Joe’s. Learn more about Date Syrup here.
If you don’t get your hands on date syrup, maple syrup is a great substitute.
Tahini: Runny tahini is key. This recipe works best with runny tahini that will easily mix with the other ingredients. Tahini brands vary widely in consistency, so look for one with a smooth, pourable texture. I like (affiliate links) Soom, Baron, and Seed+Mill.
Milk: Any milk of choice.
