  • Pour enough sesame seeds into frying pan to cover bottom and turn to medium. Stay next to fry pan, watching sesame seeds...flipping regularly so they don't burn toasting until lightly browned. Pour on to plate and cool. Store in a sealed container or plastic bag until ready to use.
  • Take cream cheese out of fridge. Using a skewer poke a few holes on all sides of cream cheese. Put into plastic container (with lid) and pour soy sauce on top. Turn cream cheese so that every side is covered in soya sauce. Put into fridge and turn occassionally.
