This smooth and creamy tahini fudge is a wonderful low carb, healthy treat. It’s so good to enjoy a decadent dessert that’s actually good for you!
I decided to make this tahini fudge because I miss halvah, a middle eastern candy made from tahini, and sugar syrup – lots of it. In fact, in a store bought halvah, the first ingredient is usually sugar, not sesame. 😮
Does this tahini fudge taste like halva?
Since this tahini fudge contains no sugar and is sweetened with just a few drops of stevia, it does not have the texture of halvah. It is naturally soft, and needs to be kept in the freezer. But it is wonderful – a rich, creamy, decadent dessert that you can feel good about eating.

How to serve tahini fudge?
Take a square out of the freezer just a couple of minutes before you want to enjoy it, and allow it to soften a bit before you savor it. Sometimes I place a square of tahini fudge on a square of Lindt 90% chocolate and enjoy them together. It’s a wonderful combination!
How long can you store homemade tahini fudge?
Since you should keep it in the freezer, you can store it for a long period of time – about three months. After you cut it into squares, place the squares in a freezer bags or in an airtight container, and store in your freezer.
