Chocolate & Hazelnut Muhallabieh - Middle Eastern Cream Tart

Chocolate & Hazelnut Muhallabieh - Middle Eastern Cream Tart created by Um Safia

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..

  • Meanwhile, add the Sweetened Condensed Milk, water, cornflour and cocoa powder in a large saucepan; bring to boil with constant stirring until mixture thickens then add rose water and stir.
  • Pour the hot mixture over the prepared base and set it aside to cool in room temperature.
  • Spread the whipped cream over the cooled filling and sprinkle with the cracked hazelnuts on top and place in the fridge till the serving time.
  • Tip: For a better garnish; pipe the whipped cream using a piping bag with a star nozzle and garnish with strawberry and mint leaves.
