I couldn't get this to set. I watched the candy thermometer and it got to the correct temp, but it never set. Bummer.
I love this stuff. I only like to cook with unrefined sugars, so I make it with sucanat. I also tried it with peanut butter instead of tahini, and that worked fine too.
Fudge is correct! Definitely not the same as traditional halva, but oh my gosh what a DIVINE fudge! Very very sweet, but that can be said for halva too. Difficult to describe, but it has a caramely, nutty flavour which is just delicious. Thank you for posting!
