Some of my friends like to visit me because they know I always have a freezer full of sweet treats, but others don’t, for that exact same reason. But not everything I make is loaded with butter and sugar, and these fudgy chocolate squares are proof. They are made with only 2 ingredients – chocolate and tahini, and I know what you’re thinking – tahini? Doesn’t sound great. But you’re wrong. It’s DELICIOUS. And you can barely taste the tahini in there. It’s a perfect healthy treat for a chocolate craving, and did I mention it takes 3 minutes to make?
You can add your favorite nuts or dried fruit to the mixture. I love to add peanuts or pistachios. For round truffles instead of squares, refrigerate the mixture, then roll into balls. This mixture yields 30-40 balls, depend on the size you want.
- 10.5 oz (300 g) 54%-60% cocoa dark/bittersweet chocolate
- 1½ cup (300 g) tahini paste
- optional - ¾ cup of your favorite add-ins like chopped nuts, seeds, or dried fruit
- Place chocolate in a heatproof bowl and microwave in 30-second increments, stirring between each, until chocolate is melted. Add tahini and whisk until combined and smooth. Stir in nuts. Spread into an 8x8-inch pan that's been lined with parchment paper. Refrigerate until set, at least 3 hours, then cut into 36 squares. Keep in the fridge as they will start to melt at room temperature.
