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!
