Halva or Halvah, which is pronounced "hall-VAH" and means "sweet", is a Middle Eastern treat, which is often made with flour and other sweeteners, nuts, and seeds. This vegan recipe will make approximately 24 bon-bons.
Place all of the ingredients in the container of a high speed blender or food processor (with cutting blade), cover and run at high speed until the ingredients form a thick smooth paste. The tamper of the Vita-Mix helps by pushing the ingredients into the blades.
Remove the bon-bon mix and form teaspoon size of small balls, whichever you prefer. Place the bon-bons in the refrigerator until they become firm.
Note: We suggest storing the bon-bons in a covered container in the refrigerator to preserve freshness, and to prevent the sesame oil from oozing out.
