Sesame is one of my favourite flavours in all its forms – sesame oil, sesame seeds, and sesame paste aka tahini! I’ve been known to put tahini on everything and dessert certainly hasn’t escaped without me getting my tahini fingers all over it. I love the combination of bitter nutty tahini and creamy chocolate with a hint of sweetness and of course a hint of salt too… this recipe really has every flavour in the book. I’m a regular maker of chocolate bark, simply because they are SO easy, always a crowd favourite and seem to be really impressive despite the little effort and cooking ability that is required.
