Chocolate Halva Bark

This is my first post as a new mom. I’m currently writing this at 8pm. Rich has already gone to sleep while I take the first shift of the night (the easy shift) and watch our son. That is how upside down our lives are.

I found this recipe on Joy of Kosher and I’m so glad I tried it! It takes 15 minutes to make and is delicious as a cold summer dessert. I served it for this past Shabbat to rave reviews!

It should be noted that while my baby began to cry right in the middle of my making this, I did manage to hold him for nearly the entire baking process – those two minutes he had in the bouncer for the sixth step were hell, though!


  • 9 ounces bittersweet baking chocolate or chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ¼ cup sesame seeds
  • 1 cup crumbled halva
  • ½ teaspoon flaky sea salt


  1. Line an 8-inch (or similar sized) baking pan with parchment paper. I used a 9” cake pan. Set aside. 
  2. Chop baking chocolate and place in microwave safe dish.Drizzle olive oil into chocolate. 
  3. Cook on high for thirty second intervals, until chocolate is mostly melted. (This can take 1-3 minutes).
  4. Remove from microwave and stir chocolate until it is silky and smooth.
  5. Gently mix in sesame seeds, halva, half the salt. 
  6. Pour chocolate mixture into prepared parchment lined pan.
  7. Top with the rest of the salt. Place in fridge for an hour to firm and set.
  8. Break into pieces and store covered in fridge for up to a week.
