      One of my treats is getting a bag of sesame honey candy from the grocery store. I guess I don't need to any more. These are very good! It would be easy to add other nuts or spices to personalize it. The instruction to wet the spatula at the end to smooth it into the pan is VERY important. I was using a silicone spatula and it was still sticking. I did use a silicone pan so I didn't have to use any oil.
