4.9 from 10 reviews


  • 1 1/2 cups whole milk
  • 1/2 cup tahini
  • 23 tablespoons honey, to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon espresso powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 8 ounces bittersweet chocolate, roughly chopped
  • whipped cream, for topping
  • sesame seeds, for topping


    1. In a small saucepan over low heat, whisk together the milk, tahini, honey (starting with 2 tablespoons), vanilla extract, espresso powder, cinnamon, and salt. Heat until the milk is just shy of scalding, then remove from heat and add in chopped chocolate. 
    2. Allow to sit for 5 minutes before whisking together. At that point, the chocolate should be fully melted, but if it isn’t, place back on heat for 1 minute. If you like your hot chocolate sweeter, taste and add another tablespoon honey.  
    3. Pour tahini hot chocolate into small mugs. Top with whipped cream and sesame seeds and serve!
