50 g margarine<br>
1 cup honey or sugar<br><br>
1. Heat the sesame seeds in a shallow pan without any oil, until they begin to jump about and turn golden.<br>
2. Shake the pan so that they do not stick or burn.<br>
3. Allow to cool.<br>
4. Using a heavy pan, heat the margarine and then add the honey.<br>
5. Stir continuously until the mixture begins to caramelise.<br>
6. Pour the sesame seeds into the warm mixture and stir thoroughly.<br>
7. Transfer the mixture into a flat tin.<br>
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<br><br><a href="" target="_blank"></a><br>
2 cups sesame seeds, dry roasted<br>
1 1/2 cups golden syrup<br>
1 Tablesp. lemon juice<br><br>
1. Boil and stir sesame seeds, golden syrup and lemon juice 5 minutes.<br>
2. Immediately pour mixture onto well-oiled flat surface.<br>
3. With a well-oiled rolling pin, roll mixture into a 1/4-inch thick slab.<br>
4. Cut into squares while warm.<br>
* Yields 20 squares.
