Sesame Hokey Pokey

IMG_0971

Some people call it honeycomb, sponge toffee, or golden crunchers.  Whatever you call it, use it as garnish on vanilla ice cream or crunch on a piece when no one is looking.

INGREDIENTS

1 1/2 cups sugar

1/2 cup water

3 tablespoons honey

1/3 cup corn syrup

4 teaspoons baking soda, sifted

1/3 cup sesame seeds

DIRECTIONS

In a large saucepan, gently combine sugar, water, honey, and corn syrup. Do not stir, but swirl pan, gently.

Boil until it turns amber in color.  It should look like caramel.  Add the baking soda and mix with wooden spoon.  It will foam up, so be careful.  Then stir in sesame seeds.

Pour the mixture onto a silpat or a piece of parchment paper on a sheet pan, and let cool. Break into pieces. Store in an airtight container.
