Meni-meniyong is a wonderful Malinese sesame-honey sweet. It's very easy to make and is great for kids and adults alike. I didn't include cooling time. Enjoy!

Delicious! Tastes like sesame snaps, a candy I grew up with (it may be one of our weird Canadian treats). This was so super easy, I'll make it anytime I'm jonesing because I always have those ingredients on hand. Thanks Nif!


  1. Preheat oven to 450ºF. Spread the sesame seeds on a baking sheet and toast in the oven for about 10 to 12 minutes. Remove and cool.
  2. Heat the honey and butter in a small saucepan over medium-low heat, stirring until it bubbles and darkens somewhat, about 3 to 5 minutes.
  3. Stir the toasted sesame seeds into honey mixture. Spread the mass onto a buttered baking sheet to a thickness of about 1/4 inch. Cool until it is just warm and cut into finger-sized pieces. Cool completely and serve.
  4. (For a tasty coating that will keep fingers less sticky, roll the candy in more toasted sesame seeds to coat after cutting it into pieces.).
