1 cup brown sugar
½ cup butter
1/3 cup milk
1/3 cup cocoa

Lightly roast sesame seeds. Make sure they don’t burn. Combine butter, milk, cocoa, cinnamon and sugar in a saucepan and bring to boil. Remove from heat and add oats. Mix well. Immediately, spread the mixture on a piece of wax paper or foil and even with fingertips or spatula. Sprinkle with roasted sesame seeds and press them gently into the surface with fingers. When it is cool, cut in bite-sized cubes. Keep refrigerated for several days.

For vegetarian version, substitute butter with peanut butter or tahini and milk with soy milk.
