For the candied cereal:

  • ½ cup cereal (use your preference but bran/corn flakes work well)
  • 2 tsp honey (we love Beekeeper’s Naturals)


  1. Combine the tahini and honey in a small bowl and set aside. It will thicken as you stir it, don’t worry.
  2. Place the chocolate in a medium heat proof bowl set over a small pot of simmering water and melt the chocolate. You can also melt the chocolate in the microwave, stirring every 15 seconds.
  3. While the chocolate is melting, arrange 10 silicone baking cups on a small plate or tray. Spoon 2 tsp of melted chocolate into each cup. Place in the fridge to set for 10 minutes.
  4. Spoon 1 tsp of the tahini honey mixture into each cup and make sure it’s in the center of the chocolate. Place in the fridge for 10 minutes.
  5. Spoon 2 tsp of melted chocolate on top of the tahini and sprinkle with sea salt (or honey candied cereal). Place in the fridge until fully set, 15-20 min.
  6. Pop out of the silicone molds and enjoy!

For the candied cereal:
