Chewy sesame sticks are my take on one of The Boys favourite snacks. He loves sesame seed snaps from our local Indian & Continental store. I’ve been trying to recreate them. My first attempt went a little bit wrong when I added maple syrup in an effort to make them taste even better. The result was that they didn’t set hard and crispy like sesame seed snaps should. I poured them far too thick as well which meant that they were chewy and stretchy instead of crispy and crunchy.
Surprisingly enough, even though they were not what I was actually making – they still tested good. Like a cross between those penny toffees in the Quality Street and the sesame snaps that The Boy loves so much. We were all suitably impressed, although one is enough or you might jam your mouth together! Chewy sesame sticks are a great solution for keeping the kids entertained for a bit! With little mouths stuffed full of sticky goodness you can have a quiet five minutes and be safe in the knowledge that they are eating something that is much better than anything shop bought! You don’t need to say no to sweet treats again.
