These Desserts Take Halvah to the Next Level

The one PR war Israel is not losing is the culinary one. Israeli cuisine is so hot right now, you can see it’s influence everywhere, from shakshuka trucks, to oiled puddles of hummus photographed to perfection, and now halvah. Cooks across the country are experimenting with it in desserts to add that same savory/salty flavor profile that peanut butter often does. If you don’t have any stores that offer halvah near you, you can order from Seed + Mill, Zabars, and Russ and Daughters.

Here are some amazing desserts that incorporate halvah into them.
