How to Make Sesame Snaps


  1. In a medium skillet over medium heat, add sesame seeds and toasted until lightly brown, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.
  2. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine sugar, honey and sea salt. Stir constantly until sugar dissolved, about 3 minutes. Bring the mixture to a gentle boil and cook for 2-3 minutes or until the color turns amber. Add toasted sesame seeds and quickly stir until well blended.
  3. Rapidly remove from the heat and dump on a silicone mat. Using a greased angled spatula, spread mixture and place another silicone mat on top. Roll down to a thin layer (thinner it is, crunchier it gets). Gently peel off the silicone mat and score with a greased knife into 2-inch square (might have to re-score a few times as it gets harder). Make 16 squares
