This is a dessert that so reminds me of my Grandma and Grandpa Campbell and our trips to the health food store. They would always get those Sesame Crunch sticks for little snacks at home and I just loved them as much as they did.
Well, I want to learn to make my own and here is the recipe.

I compiled this from several different recipes I found on the interent to come up with this one.
(Some worked for me and some didn't.)

Hope you enjoy.
P.S. Your house will smell like honey and sesame when you are finished. :-)

Ingredients

  • 3/4 c
    white sesame seeds (you can toast this if you want in a pan constantly stirring for 7 to 8 minutes)

How to Make Honey Sesame Brittle (or crunch)

Step-by-Step

  1. First, line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or tin foil sprayed with oil. Or just the pan itself sprayed with oil.

    Now, place all ingredients into a large heavy based saucepan.
  2. Begin stirring (with wooden or metal spoon) ingredients over medium heat until it comes to a boil. Remain boiling, and with a candy thermometer measure temp. till it gets to 325 degrees. (Needs to get to this temp in order to become brittle.) Immediately remove from heat and spread on pan.
  3. Spread mixture onto the pan with a spatula.
  4. Score into to pieces a few minutes after placing on cookie pan or wait and just break up into pieces when cooled. That takes about 20 minutes or so.

    I put the one's I bought at the health food store in this pic so you could see them too.
  5. You can serve in a bowl just to munch on or place it on another dessert for a crunch garnish, such as a pie or ice cream.
