I started by roasting my sesame seeds in a dry skillet over medium heat. The seeds didn’t change color too much, but they did begin to smell toasty and jump around in my pan. I stirred the seeds while roasting them (for about 5 minutes), then removed them from heat and set aside.
I tidied up the edges using the back of my knife, and removed the top piece of wax paper.
After a series of heavy meals for Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s, this light treat is a great alternative to heavier desserts.
And I’d like to think that in some way they ARE in fact healthy for you- since they are chock full of sesame seeds- which contain antioxidants, Vitamin E and Iron- just to name a few!
Whether or not they are a “healthy” candy, they taste great, and are a snap to make!

I love sesame candy! When I was little I called it birdseed and I would beg my Dad, “Can I have more birdseed???” I’m going to see if I can trick Luke into liking it as much as I did. Better than skittles!
Just made your recipe! It was just what I was wanting since I love sesame candies. I will definitely be making this often! Thanks so much.
Ooh looks so good and it’s easy. I adore sesame seeds, I’m so going to try this. Thank you for great recipe~!
