Ways to use sesame halva?

How would you use up a tub of plain halva, besides just snacking on it? The kind I have is Lebanese in origin and lightly flavored with marshmallow and geranium. Thanks!

It's good as a topping for ice cream.

It would be, but that hadn't occurred to me. Thank you.

If you're feeling ambitious, this tahini mousse pie looks delicious: http://food52.com/recipes...
I'll be following this thread, too, even though I could inhale a container in one sitting! Thin slices are also good with a coffee in the afternoon.

(Disclaimer: I have never tried this, but...) If it is crumbly enough, I'd try adding it to a cookie/graham cracker pie crust. Especially this gluten free key-lime pie crust from the Washington Post: https://www.washingtonpost...

And the coconut in that recipe make me think it would be a great topping for a coconut cake as well.
