Bottles of wine and bouquets of flowers make for lovely hostess gifts, but a box of handmade candy says "thanks for inviting me over" in a much more personal fashion. This Black-and-White Sesame Brittle from Kir Jensen's The Sugar Cube is ideal to bring along to any dinner party, simple to make, impressive to gift, and a sweet treat to nibble on after any meal.

The best part about this brittle is the simplicity factor: it's really just a matter of bubbling up a batch of caramel, stirring in the black and white sesame seeds, pouring it over a sheet of parchment, crackling it into shards of salty-sweet candy, and wrapping it into a neat little package.
