Viral Dubai Pistachio Knafeh Chocolate Bar

Prep Time15 minutes
Chilling Time2 hours
Course: Dessert
Servings: 3 bars



  • 1 tbsp neutral oil
  • 2 tbsp dairy free butter
  • 4 oz kataifi (shredded phyllo dough)
  • 1 oz tahini
  • 8 oz pistachio cream dairy free
  • 3 cups chocolate dairy free


  • Start by preparing the pistachio kataifi filling. Add kataifi to a pan over medium heat along with neutral oil and butter. Cook, stirring frequently, until the dough becomes golden brown and crisp, about 5-8 minutes. Don't be afraid to break up the pieces!
  • Transfer this mixture to a bowl along with tahini and pistachio cream and mix until smooth. Set aside.
  • Melt down your chocolate and then line your chocolate mold with a thin layer of chocolate. Be sure to get the edges of the mold as well, so you create something like a shell to contain the pistachio kataifi mixture. Add the pistachio mixture in the center, being sure not to overfill it too much, and cover with more chocolate to seal.
  • Let the bars sit in the fridge or freezer for 2-3 hours or until fully set and enjoy!
  • Pro tip: if you end up with any leftover kataifi pistachio mixture, stir in any remaining dark chocolate and scoop tablespoons of this mixture onto a lined baking sheet. Chill until completely cool and enjoy as little chocolate bites!
