Sesame Butter Brittle

This sweet snack can be served up with coffee, or can be wrapped up in a gift food basket.


  • 4 ounces (1 stick) unsalted butter

  • 1 cup sugar

  • 3/4 cup white sesame seeds, toasted

  • 1 teaspoon sea salt (Hawaiian or white)


  • 1.

    In a medium saucepot over high heat, melt butter and sugar and stir to combine. Without stirring, cook until mixture becomes a light to medium caramel color, about 3-5 minutes, then add sesame seeds and stir in. Pour mixture onto a silpat* and spread into an even, thin layer, about 1/8 to /4-inch thick, with wooden spoon. (Don't worry if shape is irregular.) Immediately sprinkle sea salt over top of mixture and lightly press into caramel using spoon. Allow to set-up for about 10-15 minutes. When brittle has hardened and cooled, break into pieces and enjoy. Store in an air-tight container.


Makes one 13x9 sheet (1/2 sheet pan), about 3/4 pound.

*If not using a silpat use a 1/2 sheet pan with parchment sprayed generously with cooking spray or wax paper
