  • Mix halva, raisins, walnuts, apple, and cinnamon together in a bowl.

  • Microwave butter in a small microwave-safe bowl until melted, about 30 seconds.

  • Stack phyllo sheets and cut into 4 strips; keep covered with a damp towel. Brush butter over 1 strip of phyllo. Place 1 teaspoon of the halva mixture at one edge. Fold the corner down to form a triangle. Continue folding the triangle onto itself until you reach the bottom of the strip. Repeat with remaining strips and halva mixture.

  • Brush some butter over a baking sheet and arrange phyllo triangles seam side-down on the sheet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, about 20 minutes. Cool briefly before dusting with confectioners' sugar.
