sesame snap crackle pop

I felt like having a little something sweet with my tea tonight.

These take just a few minutes to make and hit the spot — the Sesame Snap Crackle Pop treats taste like Halva, or Sesame Snaps.




4 tbsp. butter

8 tbsp. tahini

6 cups mini marshmallows

10 cups Rice Krispies cereal


Grab a large pot and add the butter and tahini. Tahini is a sesame paste/butter that you should be able to find in your grocery store down the isle with organic items, along with cashew or almond butter (which would also work great with this recipe!). Heat these two ingredients over medium heat until they melt, stirring occasionally.

Add the mini marshmallows and keep stirring. It takes about 2 minutes for the marshmallows to melt.

Remove the pot from the element. Dump in the Rice Krispies cereal and fold through the marshmallow and tahini mixture until it’s one giant sticky mess.

Scoop the mixture into a 9×9 pan and pat it down. I find that running a little cold water over your hands every couple of pats helps keep the warm sticky treat from sticking to your fingers.

Let the pan sit for about 5 minutes and then place it upside down on a cutting mat. The treat is still warm and will pop out of the pan. Let it sit until it cools (if you can wait that long) and then cut it into little squares. Grab a cup of tea, and enjoy.

Warning: These are downright addictive!
