Halawa, or Halva as it's also known is a delicious confection served across the Middle East, the Balkans and eastern Europe. The primary ingredient is nut butter -- most often Tahini paste -- which is mixed with sugar. As it cools it will form a block of a crumbly, hardened paste-like mixture. You can either eat it on its own, or with something else, and a truly wonderful way to eat it is spread, with a little butter, on to fresh baguette.

There is another type of halva, made with semolina, more common in Southern Asia, but in this video today I'm making only the nut-butter variety.
