Servings: Makes approximately 1 lb.
Preparation Time: 20 minutes

1. In a small saucepan melt the honey and the coconut cream concentrate together, stirring until the mixture is thin and very hot but not simmering. Remove from heat. Add the sesame tahini and stir in vigorously with a spoon for a couple minutes. Refrigerate for 10 or 15 minutes.

2. Gently melt the chocolate in a double boiler or over very low heat. Pour 2/3 of the melted chocolate into the cooled tahini mixture and give only one or two stirs as you empty the mixture into the bottom of a bread pan lined with parchment. Drizzle the remaining 1/3 of the melted chocolate over the top of the mixture and run a butter knife through it a few times to create a marbled effect.

Chill in refrigerator for a few hours before cutting into squares. Store in a covered container in the refrigerator.
