Recipe for Raspberry Halva Brownies from Dappled by Nicole Rucker and cookbook & Zabar’s New York Bakery Bundle giveaway

Posted by admin on

Cookbook review by Tracey Zabar Halva is a sweet, dry and sandy treat. This recipe brilliantly adds little pieces of it, along with raspberries, to a brownie batter, where the halva melts when baked.
