I’m a curious researcher, always wanting to know the origin of something, or why it works. So I love Alton Brown’s unique explanations for his recipes. While any brownie recipe would work to top with halva, I was intrigued with his two-bake method and loved the results! The result is a deliciously fudgy, gooey-in-the-middle and not overly sweet brownie. The halva adds a subtle layer of flavour to these rich chocolatey squares.
