Delicious halva candy combines with chocolate to make two great tastes that go great together. This amazing recipe will create brownies that you're sure not to forget anytime soon.


  • 3/4 pound halva
  • 4 ounces semisweet chocolate
  • 1 stick unsalted butter (at room temperature)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder​
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Steps to Make It

  1. Melt the semi-sweet chocolate in the microwave or a bowl set over a pot of simmering water. Allow it to cool slightly.

  2. Preheat the oven to 350 F and butter and flour an 8-inch square pan. Lining it with parchment paper will also help remove the brownies when they're done.

  3. Add the sugar and butter to a large bowl and, using a stand or hand mixer, cream them together until the mixture has lightened in color. Beat in the eggs, vanilla and melted and cooled chocolate.

  4. In a separate bowl, sift together the unsweetened cocoa powder, flour, baking powder, and salt. Add the dry ingredients into the wet and stir to combine.

  5. Cut the halva into 1/2-inch pieces and sprinkle them evenly across the bottom of the prepared baking pan. Pour the brownie batter over the halva and bake for approximately 40 to 45 minutes or until the tops of the brownies are set. Cool before slicing and removing from the pan.
