  • Heat the sesame seeds in a shallow pan without any oil, until they begin to jump about and turn golden.

  • Using a heavy pan, heat the margarine and then add the honey.
  • Stir continuously until the mixture begins to caramelise.
  • Pour the sesame seeds into the warm mixture and stir thoroughly.
  • Transfer the mixture into a flat tin.
