How to Make Molasses Halva ?

  • Add walnuts and fry for a few more minutes. Mix water, molasses, vanilla and sugar in a bowl and add to the flour you roasted and mix quickly.
  • Cook for 5 minutes and leave it to cool down. Take pieces from the mixture, flatten them on the counter and cut them with a flower-shaped cookie cutter and arrange on a serving plate. Dip hazelnuts in the middle.
