Chocolate isn't normally a main ingredient in Arab desserts, but things have changed in recent years.

Chocolatiers in the region have been creating sweets that fuse chocolate with popular Middle Eastern flavors. Here are a few Arab chocolate combos that are pretty creative, to say the least:

1. Chocolate jallab bites, anyone?

2. Chocolate knefe is a thing now

3. Chocolate halawa spread for the win

4. Someone made date maamoul that's covered in chocolate

5. Someone did that to baklava, too

6. Chocolate qatayef exist

7. So does chocolate mafrouke

8. Ever tried chocolate muhallabiya?

9. Or zaatar chocolate bars?

10. Bet you'd love some saffron stuffed chocolates
