    Sesame Brittle

    This was a spur-of-the-moment recipe and it turned out well. I’ve only made it twice, but it’s easy. This recipe is giving me ideas about making other kinds of brittle, like nut brittle, and it could also be another technique for making granola bars. Happy Holidays!

      I tried it, though made the mistake of putting in the oven without letting it sit. It didn’t get crunchy and the parchment paper stuck. But that’s my fault for not following the recipe. It tasted really good, but I think the sesame hurt my stomach. Thanks for posting.

      ooh. Sorry it hurt! Some folks can’t tolerate seeds and you might be one of them. The trick is to get the honey to a certain point where it becomes candy-like. You can test it by drizzling a bit of the warm honey in cold water. If it solidifies in the water, it’s ready.

      I’ve been beside myself trying to put weight on my 14 year old Aspie with Crohn’s, but he LOVES the Sesame Brittle and can’t get enough. Thank you!!

      I’ve found that if it doesn’t turn out crisp, you can just freezer it for a little while and it’s great.

      I made this with half honey and half Agave. Added some red pepper flakes to spice it up too………Awesome, thanks!
