  1. HI Kit, my quick Hi after a long break. the brittles look so crunchy & so sweeeettt.. the shining caramel made me drooling over here. It is my 1st time to hear about this wasabi sesame.. new lesson I guess..

  2. This look awesome and look delicious too! Love Nigella! Kit

  3. What fabulous looking brittle, Kit. This coming from someone who isn't all that fond of brittle, lol...Totally intrigued by the Wasabi Sesame Seeds. I'll be looking for those!

    Thanks for sharing, Kit...Your pictures are mesmerizing:)

  4. Hi Kit,

    You must be wasabi-loving person. I like wasabi but only with sushi :p

    However, I reckon that the use of your wasabi flavored sesame seeds to make this sesame seed brittle make this extra-interesting.


  5. Oh I dont think I've ever seen wasabi sesame seeds before here, you get much more exotic stuff over there than here. :)

  6. Very nice looking sesame seeds although I am not a fan of wasabi:P This brittle sounds easy but not so because I have burnt enough sugar while trying to caramelize it lol!

  7. Oh Kit!! This brittle must be bursting with nuts, seed and wasabi flavor..:p
    I would like to have a few pieces because just simply can't stop at a piece..:D

    Love the first click ..Looks very CNY..hehe
    (with the red peony and the orange mandarin...love it)


  8. Hi Kit,
    Lovely brittles, Kit! This has been on my list of to-try. I've got to check the expiry date of my peanuts first!!!
    I have never seen wasabi sesame seeds, perhaps the store that sells Japanese food stuffs might have it. I am not a fan of wasabi but I think I would not mind these!
    Thanks for linking!

  9. Wasabi sesame seeds?? That sounds awesome by itself, then you add it on a beautiful brittle. Great job!

    Happy Blogging!
