Prep Time5 mins
Cook Time15 mins
- 1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate
- 1/2 cup tahini
- 2-4 Tablespoons powdered sugar to taste
- 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil optional
Set up a double boiler on the stove. Melt the chocolate together with the tahini, and half of the powdered sugar. Depending on your preference and the sweetness of your chocolate, add more powdered sugar to taste. For a stronger sesame flavor, add a teaspoon or two of toasted sesame oil. Cook over the double boiler until all of the chocolate melts and the flavors have time to meld together, approximately 15 minutes.
Alternately, microwave the chocolate and tahini until completely melted, whisking every 30 seconds to ensure an even melt. Add the powdered sugar one tablespoon at a time, tasting as you go to make sure it's to your liking. Add the sesame oil if a stronger sesame flavor is desired.
Store in a jar, allowing to cool completely before placing in the fridge. MIcrowave for 30 seconds to warm to a spreadable consistency. Tahini has the best shelf life when stored in the fridge.
