1 cup sugar
1 cup Sesame seeds (slightly toasted or untoasted or half of each)
1/8 cup honey
2-3 Tbsp Brown Sugar
1 Tbsp of water
2 tsp butter
Pinch of salt
Pinch of ginger
Pinch of nutmeg
1/2 tsp vanilla extract (high quality)
Pinch of cardamom (optional)
1/4 tsp baking soda


  1. Combine cup of sugar with honey, brown sugar, a tablespoon of water, a pinch of nutmeg, a pinch of cardamom, along with a pinch of salt.
  2. Mix well until well combined and mixture begins to look syrup like.
  3. Add in toasted Sesame seeds (see below for instructions) or raw Sesame seeds if you prefer (you can also go half and half – toasted and untoasted for a blend of flavors).
  4. Mix well until all seeds are coated and well incorporated into the caramelized sugar mixture. Then add in vanilla extract and butter. Mixture will turn a slightly darker amber color once done.
  5. Remove mixture from heat source and spread out mixture into a ¼ inch thick layer onto a parchment lined cast iron skillet or griddle.
  6. Let cool for 20 minutes. Then with a wooden spatula or a butter knife, make rows in the slightly warm mix. Let cool all the way and break into pieces along the row indentations.

Directions for toasting Sesame Seeds:
Toast the sesame seeds in a cast iron skillet by putting in a 350⁰F preheated oven for 5 minutes.

After, 5 minutes, stir sesame seeds to prevent burning of the seeds at the bottom and let seeds toast another 5 minutes then add to your mixture.
