  1. Preheat the oven to gas 4, 180°C, fan 160 ̊C. Unroll the pastry on a lightly floured surface. Mix the tahini with the honey, then spread over the pastry. Sprinkle with 2 tbsp of the sesame seeds. Cut the pastry lengthways into 15 thin strips, about 8mm wide, then fold each strip in half.
  2. Brush with egg; sprinkle over the remaining sesame seeds and sea salt. Twist each straw 3-4 times and place on a lined baking tray. Bake for 15 mins or until golden brown.

Tip: Heat 85g Tesco Finest Belgian chocolate sauce to pack instructions and serve with the straws.

Get ahead: Make the straws up to 2 days ahead and store in an airtight container.
