Sesame Candy with a hint of Cardamom and Ginger

A girl can never have enough shoes!! Never ever! Proved that again this weekendJ
DH needed a new pair of sports shoe and we went down for the Royal sports ware house sale! Sadly , he didn’t find any for his taste  , but I found a cute pair of lactose shoes. With this black shoe, I think my shoe collection is just perfect,  almost have a matching shoe for most of my pants..Great! Picked it!
Got out of the sale, what do I see? Crocs new arrival collection! Now, I have to try that. I tried a few but DH started to bug me as we had a movie to catch.All I could think during the movie is the cute little black crocs shoe calling out for me “Buy me please..pretty please”!! My shoe collection will be totally absolutely complete if I had that one more black crocs shoe, I started to fell a  gravity pull or rather a croc-ity pull. After 1.5 hours of  dreaming of the shoe in the midst of a movie, I went straight to the shop and got that one as well and walked happily to MRT doing the happy dance. Guess what there is a shoe sale in the courtyard, I automatically started to do another round of shoe to dress mapping! Man I am a shopaholic shoe-aholic! I NEED HELP!!!I NEED HELP!!

 Now let us come back to Candy from my shoe craze. This flavourful crunchy sesame candy will make a perfect gift item if you can manage to resist to spare any.

Sesame Candy with a hint of Cardamom and Ginger

Recipe courtesy: Spoonfull
1 Cup White Sesame seeds
3 tbspn Honey
3 tbspn Brown sugar
2 Pod of cardamom pounded well
½ tspn of Dried Ginger powder

Dry roast the sesame seeds for 5-7 minutes, until it is fragrant
Meanwhile add the honey ,brown sugar and flavouring in a heavy bottomed pan and bring to a boil, simmer for 5 minutes until it is bubbly.
Add the sugar syrup to the sesame seeds and mix well. Be careful here, it will be really hot.
Now gently scoop the mix to a parchment paper, put another later of parchment paper on top and using a rolling pin, roll it into ½ inch thickness.
Using a sharp knife, cut it into 1 inch slices and let it cool, you can break apart easily once it is cooled down.
