Sesam Thins

These sesam thins are a great snack between meals and also fantastic to serve with a chocolate mousse. But be carefull when you make these becouse you can burn your self pretty badly if you not carefull......so no kids allowed in the kitchen when you are making these sesam thins.
5 dl caster sugar
8 tbsp of water
200g sesam seeds

Pour the sugar and 8 tbsp of water onto a hot pan. Let the sugar melt into a golden brown caramel. Sprinkle over the sesam seeds and continue cooking until dark brown.
Pour onto a oiled teflon sheet and spread with a knife to ½ cm thickness....or thinner if you can. Let it cool down for 15 minutes and then break into pieces. Lovely to serve some chocolate mousse with the sesam thins

Oh, I've been injured before by caramel. It sounds faintly ridiculous, even as I type it...'injured by caramel', as if it's some wild, untamed beast.

Well, the truth is that a melted caramel is approximately the same temperature as molten lave, but with the ability to stick like a limpet to your forearms. Be careful.

Worth the pain though - those biscuits look delicious.
