To make the sahlab powder, combine the milk powder, rice flour, icing sugar, sesame seeds, corn flour and vanilla powder in a medium bowl and whisk to combine. Store in a resealable zip-top bag or airtight container for up to a year.


To make the chilled sahlab, place half the milk in a medium-sized pot over a medium heat. Slowly whisk in the sahlab powder. Continue to whisk until the mixture thickens, approx. 5-10 minutes.


Remove from the heat and stir in the chocolate and 100g halva until a smooth mixture forms and all the chocolate has melted.


Add in the rest of the milk and refrigerate until needed.


Serve with a dusting of cocoa powder and the rest of the halva.
