    Mirj's Note:

    Every little Jewish kid who grew up in the States always had a Candy Man in shul. He was the old guy who always had hard candies in his pocket for the kids. And those candies usually were the hard little sesame brittle bars that got wedged in between your teeth and under your fillings. Make some of these to bring back memories.

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 64

    Yield:

    pounds

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
    2. 2
      Place the sesame sees on a large cookie sheet or jelly roll pan and toast them in the oven for 15 minutes.
    3. 3
      Place the seeds in a 3 quart pan. Add the sugar, corn syrup, 1/3 cup water and margarine to the sesame seeds.
    4. 4
      Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly.
    5. 5
      Once it's come to the boil, continue to cook without stirring until the temperature reaches 270 degrees F on a candy thermometer or until a small amount of the mixture forms a ball when dropped into very cold water. (I don't have a candy thermometer, so I use the ball test.) This can take 15 to 20 minutes or more. The ball should be "plastic" in texture but should hold the ball shape.
    6. 6
      Grease a jelly roll pan.
    7. 7
      Stir the baking soda into the sesame seed mixture and pour into the jelly roll pan.
    8. 8
      Spread the mixture with a metal spatula so it is 1/4 inch thick.
    9. 9
      Cool completely and then break into pieces.
    10. 10
      Don't forget to brush your teeth well after munching on these.
