We love chocolate in my house! This no-bake chocolate fridge cake creation was masterminded by my sister, who once brought ‘chocolate mosaic with halva’ to a family gathering. I immediately had to have the recipe! Incidentally, if you aren’t such a big fan of that sesame flavour, I have a chocolate mosaic recipe here.

Halva is a dessert or confectionary which comes in different guises and means different things across the world. Greek halva, though, is considered a traditional Greek orthodox fasting food. Either semolina-based or sesame-based, mine uses sesame-based halva, giving that nutty flavour and crumbly texture.

There’s something so moreish about the combination of melted dark chocolate, nuts and halva. It’s filling, it satisfies you - but you cannot help going back for more. The plate is guaranteed to be wiped clean when you make this, however much you make!

Tips

Instead of bain-marie, you can melt the chocolate in a microwave. Use a small bowl covered with cling film and microwave it for about 2 minutes. Depending on the microwave’s power, a few more seconds may be needed.

You can substitute the roasted almods with hazelnuts or pistachios and the cranberries with raisins.
