      YUMMY! These are "To Die For", will say my dad when he has these! He loves eating anything with sesame seeds(as we believe that it makes you a rich man if you have this on New Years' eve, but dad likes it all year through;!). I have made this for him today (I doubled the recipe too!!), but I'm going to gift these to him on Fathers' Day, the 15th of June! These look really good and taste wonderful plus were so easy to make! A definite keeper! Thanks for posting!!

      If you are having trouble with this recipe I have a theory. There would be too much honey if you did not allow it to boil down some. I brought it to a high boil and stirred quickly for about 3min. This allowed some of the liquid to evaporate. Creating the brittle that you are desiring. Also I let it cool completely and then break it apart into random sizes chunks. I did a half recipe using 1/2 of sesame seeds, 2tbls of butter and 1/2 cup of honey. Hope this can help anyone having trouble

      The ratio of sesame seeds to honey just isn't right. Far too much honey. Very disappointing.
