Black sesame seeds are more flavorful and have a stronger aroma than white or brown sesame seeds. Toasting the seeds enhances that flavor.  They’re rich in a fatty oil, between 40% and 60%, which has a distinctive flavor; this pairs nicely with the sweetness of the white chocolate.

white chocolate bark with toasted black sesame seeds

1 pound white chocolate, chopped (do not use chips)

black sesame seeds, toasted.

1/4 tsp. sesame oil

~ Spray a rimmed baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray; line with waxed paper and set aside

~ Place white chocolate in a heatproof bowl set over (not in) a saucepan of simmering water. Heat, stirring occasionally, until smooth, 4 to 6 minutes. Remove from heat, add sesame oil and stir to combine.

~ Pour mixture onto prepared baking sheet; using a spatula, spread evenly to a 1/4-inch thickness.

~ Sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds; with a piece of waxed paper covering the entire surface, press in gently. Chill until firm, 20 to 30 minutes

~ Peel waxed paper off. Break bark into 2-inch pieces. Enjoy!

This looks really good. I like black sesame anything, it has such a subtle but rich flavor. I’ve done it with pound cakes and cookies but never on white chocolate. It looks great!
