1 batch
20 minutes 5 mins prep
100 g sesame seeds
50 g margarine
1 cup honey or sugar

1. Heat the sesame seeds in a shallow pan without any oil, until they begin to jump about and turn golden.
2. Shake the pan so that they do not stick or burn.
3. Allow to cool.
4. Using a heavy pan, heat the margarine and then add the honey.
5. Stir continuously until the mixture begins to caramelise.
6. Pour the sesame seeds into the warm mixture and stir thoroughly.
7. Transfer the mixture into a flat tin.
8. As the mixture cools, shape it into sticks either by cutting or rolling, and then coating it with more sesame seeds if required.

here's another one. i dont know what 'golden syrup' is, but as far as i know, honey can be used as a straight substitute for corn syrup. it would make something sweet anyways! :LOL

2 cups sesame seeds, dry roasted
1 1/2 cups golden syrup
1 Tablesp. lemon juice


1. Boil and stir sesame seeds, golden syrup and lemon juice 5 minutes.
2. Immediately pour mixture onto well-oiled flat surface.
3. With a well-oiled rolling pin, roll mixture into a 1/4-inch thick slab.
4. Cut into squares while warm.
* Yields 20 squares.
