Gelt is the yiddish term for money and traditionally during Hanukkah, coins were a common gift given from parents to children. Now, often gifted as chocolate, it's usually wrapped in gold foil and made to look like coins.
We bring you a different take on the traditional hanukkah gelt and added tahini and coconut oil. This way you can participate in your favourite traditions without feeling guilty.
Tahini is rich in calcium, magnesium, phosphorus and methionine, which aids in liver detoxification. Sesame seeds contain up to 55% oil and 20% protein, making them super beneficial to our health by providing both healthy fats and essential amino acids. It's also a great way to obtain B Vitamins & iron.
Hanukkah Tahini Gelt (Vegan, Gluten Free & Dairy Free)
You will need:
- 3/4 cup vegan chocolate chips
- 2 tbsp tahini
- 2 tsp kosher coconut oil
- pinch kosher salt
- mini muffin tin
Over low-medium heat, melt the chocolate, tahini, coconut oil, and salt in a small saucepan. Stir frequently until completely melted. Lightly brush muffin tins with coconut oil. Pour mixture into tins, just covering the bottom of each. This batch will make 24 chocolate coins. While chocolate is still wet, add any sprinkles you desire. If painting with metallic gold food paint, do so after the chocolate has hardened.
Place the mini muffin tin in freezer for at least 30 minutes. To release the chocolates, simply insert a thin knife along the side of each tin and it will pop out. Decorate accordingly or wrap in gold foil. Store your gelt in the fridge or freezer. It will melt quicker when at room temperature.
