    Um Safia's Note:

    Muhallabieh is typically a Lebanese dessert but is popular all over the Middle East in various forms. The best way I could describe it is that it tastes like chocolate covered turkish delight!!! This is a particularly good but very sweet version :) I sometimes like to use almonds in place of the hazelnuts, I also double the rose water & the cocoa powder. I also like to omit the condensed milk & just use all milk (including milk in place of the water) & then sweeten which means that the tart is no longer sickly sweet! Chilling time not included..
