This recipe is a delicious blend of the nutty-like flavor of sesame, with sweet and decadent chocolate morsels -- all wrapped up in a soft dough with crisp edges.
*Please read instruction no. 2 before you begin to be sure you have equipment you might need.
Preheat the oven to 325°F, and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
Add the sesame seeds to a small sauté pan and place it over low-medium heat. They will begin to turn golden within a couple of minutes. Move the pan around often, and once they are all golden, look a bit oily, and are aromatic, immediately remove them from the heat. (Be careful as they can go from golden to black quickly!) Pour the toasted seeds into a mortar. Use the pestle to grind them until it's a coarse powder. (You can also do this is a spice grinder or mini food processor.) Set aside.
Bake in the preheated 325°F oven until they are slightly golden along the edges and no longer look doughy, about 15 to 17 minutes.
