Ingredients

Nonstick cooking spray, for the pan

1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, melted 

9 full graham cracker rectangles, crushed (1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs)

1/4 teaspoon kosher salt 

1 cup chopped dark chocolate 

1 1/2 cups halva, chopped 

1 cup chopped toasted pistachios 

One 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk 

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1 teaspoon rosewater, optional

1 1/3 cups sweetened shredded coconut 

2 tablespoons food-grade dried rose petals, optional 

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9-by-9-inch pan with cooking spray and line with parchment, leaving a 2-inch overhang.
  2. Add the butter to the prepared pan. Spread the graham cracker crumbs and salt evenly over the bottom of the pan. Add the chopped chocolate, halva and pistachios.
  3. In a medium bowl, stir the condensed milk with the vanilla and rosewater, if using. Pour evenly all over the layers in the pan. Sprinkle the coconut on top, then top with the rose petals if desired.
  4. Bake until the edges are golden brown, about 25 minutes. Let cool before cutting into bars.
