  • 30 g sesame seeds

Directions

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C).
  • Mix all the ingredients in a blender or food processor until they are chopped coarsely, not too finely.
  • Use a spatula to place in a baking dish, 7– 11 inches, preferably lined with parchment paper.
  • Bake for 15–20 minutes until the cake has turned a nice color, without letting it burm.
  • Let cool a little and remove from the baking dish. Divide into 20 or 24 pieces with a sharp knife.
  • Melt the chocolate for decoration in a wa- ter bath using a double boiler or in the mi- cro-wave
  • Dip each bar in the chocolate, but just about half an inch or on just one side. Let cool completely.
  • Keep in the refrigerator or freezer.
