Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup (75 mL) sugar
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) honey
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) sesame seeds
  • 2 tsp (10 mL) butter
  • pinch of baking soda

Method

  1. Line rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside. In heavy-bottomed saucepan , stir together sugar, honey and 2 tbsp (30 mL) water. Cook over medium heat just until dissolved. Stir in sesame seeds and butter. Continue cooking 4 to 6 min.,  without stirring, brushing down sides of saucepan occasionally with pastry brush dipped in cold water (to prevent bits of sugar from hardening on pan side), or until mixture is medium caramel colour.
  2. Sprinkle on baking soda and mix in (mixture will foam). Immediately pour mixture onto prepared baking sheet. Working quickly, tip  the sheet from side to side to spread brittle mixture evenly. Let cool; break into shards. (Make-ahead: Store in airtight container up to 1 week).

Tips:

  • Enjoy sesame brittle on its own or use to garnish ice cream.
