Soom Foods makes this sweet and salty spread by grinding roasted white sesame seeds into a smooth paste and blending it with cocoa powder, cane sugar and a pinch of sea salt. Luscious and spoonable with a consistency similar to frosting, Dark Chocolate Tahini is vegan, gluten free and can be used in all kinds of desserts and snacks—if you can resist eating it all from the jar.
How to use
Spread Soom Foods Dark Chocolate Tahini over toast, spoon into smoothies or use it like frosting, slathering it across cakes and cookies. Swap it in for standard tahini when making brownies, halvah or No-Bake Tahini Cheesecake Bars—just remember to reduce the amount of sugar that’s called for in the original recipes.
