Ginger Honeycomb Brittle

This recipe for Ginger Honeycomb Brittle from http://www.ephemeralbee.wordpress.com looks surprisingly simple! I’ve been spying quite a few brittle recipes on WP but it always looks soooooo complicated!

    I made it and it was delicious. The second time I made it I added candied ginger that I chopped fine and some sesame seeds. 1 tablespoon of the chopped candied ginger and 2 to 3 tablespoons of white sesame seeds. It was a hit with everyone at work.
