black sesame brittle
10 pieces — 20 minutes
Sesame brittle looks impressive when served over desserts, like small pieces of black coral.
It's simple to make, but requires all of your attention. The sugar syrup becomes solid when cool, so all steps must be done quickly. These are no-bake, and are ready to eat almost instantly.
These are best served over desserts that aren't too sweet, the sweet of the sesame brittle can be a bit overpowering, we suggest serving it with fruit, or kanten (agar agar based desserts).
