Chocolate Halva Hamantaschen

These are the best hamantaschen I have ever eaten. Sweet cookie dough stuffed with chocolate spread and halva. with a layer of melted chocolate and halva crumbles on top. So delicious! Perfect for Purim.

Servings: about 18 hamantashen

2 eggs
1/2 cup oil
2/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 1/2 cups flour
Chocolate spread
Halva spread
Halva bar, crumbled into little pieces
Optional: 1 cup chocolate chips if you want to drizzle chocolate on top

1. Cream together sugar, oil, eggs and vanilla.
2. Slowly add flour and baking powder. Mix together. The dough might be crumbly, use your hands to smooth it out and combine it. (if the dough is sticky add an additional 1/4 cup flour)
3. Roll dough out on floured surface (about 1/4 to 1/8 thick. Not too thick since then the circles are hard to shape and will open up. Not too thin since then it will rip when shaping or filling)
4. Cut circles out using a donut cutter, cookie cutter or the rim of a large glass cup or mason jar.
5. Fill center of circle with 1/2 teaspoon halva and 1/2 teaspoon chocolate spread.
6. Form a triangle by folding one side over, then the other and bring the bottom up. Pinch sides down.
7. Bake on 350′ for 10 to 12 minutes depending on how soft or crispy you want them. I like them super soft so I take them out at about 10 minutes.
8. Allow hamantaschen to cool off before topping with halva crumbles. Optional, you can top hamantaschen with melted chocolate chips before placing crumbled halva on top. Melt chocolate chip in microwave in 30 second increments.
