Honey Sesame Bars

Posted on Leave a comment

I had the pleasure of making these bars along side star of “For Love and Honey” on Hallmark Channel, Andrew Walker! We are celebrating this movie by making a honey-based snack to pay homage to the place this movie takes place in, which is Malta! Malta is known for their honey, and in my video with Andrew, you’ll learn about that and many other interesting facts surrounding “For Love and Honey”!

****Check out the video of this recipe on my YouTube Channel “Hungry For Hallmark”.


  • 1 1/2 cups sesame seeds
  • 1 1/2 cups honey
  • a pinch of salt
  • 2 teaspoons orange zest
  • ΒΌ teaspoon ground cinnamon


First toast up the sesame seeds in a skillet on low/medium heat until they are smelling toasty and slightly darker in color. Set aside in a bowl.

Next, add honey to the skillet and let that come to a soft boil. In the meantime, go back to the bowl of sesame seeds and add salt, cinnamon and orange zest.

Once the honey has come to a boil, add the sesame seed mixture into the honey and return to a boil. Continue to boil for 8 to 10 minutes, stirring very often, until thickened.

Line a square baking dish with parchment paper or silicone baking mat and pour hot mixture in. Spread evenly with a rubber spatula and let it sit out to set over the course of 2 hours at the least.

Once bars are hardened and set, use a sharp knife to cut them into bars. Enjoy!
