A sweeter dish is sesame candy "halva". Add honey to sesame paste. Make it rather dry and shape into a bar. You can also marble it by adding some coca powder to half the mixture, then blending and squeezing together. You could make this in individual portions actually in a ziploc baggie for each girl: put ingredients in and let her squeeze and blend it all together. If it made rather dry, you can eat it by hand in chunks. Otherwise you might want plastic spoons. A few walnut or pistachio pieces can be added at the end if fancy halva is desired.
If you can get prickly pear cactus fruit, this is a traditional fruit eaten in Israel (carefully). Peel and cut in little slices for everyone to try. It is called a "sabra". Israelis who are born in Israel, not immigrants, call themselves "sabras" after this fruit. They claim they are "prickly on the outside, but sweet on the inside".
