Chocolate Sesame Cookies ...inspired by Just Desserts for Food 'n Flix
Practice sessions, butting of heads, and ultimately attraction ensue on their quest to victory. While they are confident in their ability and their passion to win, they do contemplate using their "secret ingredient" given to them by Marco's uncle. But, as life in the kitchen usually goes, the secret ingredient turns out to be love...because "true love has true flavor". I'll be honest, this movie was pretty bad. Bad acting, cheesy predictable plot (and I'm a lover of chick flicks). But I'm not one to let a less than stellar flick dissuade me from baking up something tasty. While cookies probably wouldn't win any pastry competitions...okay, they wouldn't (no probably about it)...I think the amazing chocolate and sesame combination in these cookies are worth raving about. Different, yet familiar. Nutty and seedy and super rich and fudgy. I bet they'd even make watching this movie a little more enjoyable.

I'm sending this over to Tina at Life in the Slow Lane at Squirrel Head Manor who is hosting Food 'n Flix this month with her chosen film, Just Desserts. Next month's pick is Ratatouille, so start thinking of what you want to make now!
