What to do with Chocolate Tahini?

It's time to get the odd and ends out of the pantry to make room for the abundance of pickled hot peppers I'm canning this year. :-)

We went on a med cruise this year and found grocery stores in every port. In Greece we picked up a jar of chocolate tahini. It seemed like a good idea at the time! Now I have absolutely no idea what to do with it.

I have done a google search and found no recipes for using chocolate tahini as an ingredient. Found lots of cookie recipes using tahini and chocolate chips but I was looking for something a little more 'special' since we took the time to haul the jar home from our vacation.

Any ideas?
