4 Ways Chocolate Sesame Butter Can Enhance Your Party

Creamy and smooth, chocolate sesame butter is the latest family favorite! While most people are just enjoying it straight out of the jar, here are some fun and easy ideas that will make hosting cozy and delicious.

  1. Chocolate Crepes: Purchase some premade crepes and defrost fully. Preheat a pan, place a crepe inside it, and heat for about 10 seconds. Flip over, then remove from the pan. Spread with chocolate sesame butter, then sprinkle with graham cracker crumbs or ground nuts, roll up, and serve. You can also slice into mini appetizers and serve with toothpicks.
  2. Ultimate Hot Chocolate! Warm one bottle (2 liters) of 2% or full-fat milk in a pot. Add 1 Tbsp coffee granules that have been dissolved in ¼ cup hot water. Add ¼ cup chocolate syrup and a few Tbsp of chocolate sesame butter and mix really well. Bring to a soft boil and serve.
  3. Decadent and Super-easy Chocolate Mousse: Beat one 8-oz (250-ml) container of pareve whipping cream until stiff. Fold in one jar of chocolate sesame butter. Pipe into cups and top with shaved chocolate. Refrigerate for up to two days before serving. You can also serve in meringue cups with fresh strawberries.
  4. A Charcuterie Board (i.e., fondue style): Place the chocolate sesame butter in two bowls. Choose different items that taste delicious dipped into chocolate, such as salted pretzels in different shapes; marshmallows; strawberries, yellow physalis berries (aka gooseberries), and pineapple; and cookies, Oreos, and tea biscuits. Build them all around the bowls and serve.
