If you are looking for a quick and simple sweet snack that satisfies both taste and crunch, look no further. With only three ingredients, this recipe found on a blog by Carrots and Spice is the fastest snack recipe that I have discovered that lasts for a couple weeks if stored in an airtight container (if you can refrain from eating them that long, that is). Perfect for satisfying those sweet tooth cravings. PLUS it's gluten free!
- 1½ cups toasted sesame seeds
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1 cup raw honey
Combine ingredients in a large heavy-based saucepan and bring to the boil, stirring occasionally, over low heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until mixture reaches 320°F on a candy thermometer.
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Pour mixture into sheet and smooth top. Allow to cool slightly, using a sharp knife, cut into pieces. Let cool completely, and then break into pieces. Will keep in an airtight container for up to two weeks.
Yield: about 25 pieces
Total Time: approximately 20 minutes
