This smooth and creamy tahini fudge is a wonderful low carb, healthy treat. It’s so good to enjoy a decadent dessert that’s actually good for you!
I decided to make this tahini fudge because I miss halvah, a middle eastern candy made from tahini and sugar syrup – lots of it. In fact, in a store bought halvah, the first ingredient is usually sugar, not sesame.
Since this tahini fudge contains no sugar and is sweetened with just a few drops of stevia (which I believe is very safe), it does not have the texture of halvah. It is soft, and needs to be kept in the freezer.
Take a square out of the freezer just a couple of minutes before you want to enjoy it, and allow it to soften a bit before you savor it. This tahini fudge may not be halvah, but it is a rich, creamy, decadent dessert that you can actually feel good about eating.
PS. If you’re looking for savory recipes that use sesame butter, try this wonderful tahini sauce recipe.
