How to Make Chocolate Covered Sesame Seed Cookies for Valentine's Day - Video Recipe

Sesame seeds are high in iron, fiber, and vitamin E like almonds and keep your skin healthy.

These cookies are not too sweet just like scones. Chocolate coating makes them sweet enough and absolutely wonderful!!!

A healthy choice for Valentine's Day ;)

Chocolate Covered Sesame Seed Cookies

Difficulty: EASY
Time: 30min
Number of Servings: 20

50g (1.8oz.) toasted black sesame seeds
50g (1.8oz.) honey
100g (3.5oz.) butter *room temperature
1 egg *room temperature
150g (5.3oz.) cake flour *I think all purpose flour is ok
1/2 tsp. baking powder
100g (3.5oz.) milk chocolate

1. Strain toasted black sesame seeds through a sieve to coarsely grind them. You can use a mortar and pestle, or a blender of course.
2. Cream the butter in a bowl with a wire whisk. Add coarsely ground sesame seeds, honey, and egg (in order) and mix well.
3. Sift in flour and baking powder, then mix well.
4. Preheat the oven to 180C (350F). Place parchment paper on a baking sheet. Make 2 small oval shapes with the dough and attach them together to make a heart shape. In this way, you don't need a heart-shaped cookie cutter :)
5. Bake at 180C (350F) for about 12 minutes. Place them on a wire rack to cool.
6. Dip half of each cookie into melted chocolate. Cool in the fridge to set.

You can add more sugar or honey to make them sweeter to your liking!

You can also put a piece of chocolate in the middle :)
