Chocolate Halva Pull Apart “Babka”

1 frozen, raw challah, defrosted completely (cover it as it defrosts)
1/3 cup coconut oil or margarine, melted 
1/3 cup chocolate chips
1/3 cup crumbled halva

1 tsp vanilla 
2 tbsp brown sugar plus more to sprinkle on top

Coat each challah ball with coconut oil or margarine. Place half of balls in single layer at the bottom of the pan.

Sprinkle with additional brown sugar and cinnamon. 
Bake for about 30 minutes, until nicely browned on top.
