Pour into a greased bowl.
Mix the next 4 ingredients in a saucepan, and cook slowly until syrup spins a thread, about 40 minutes, or until a candy thermometer registers 250°F.
Sprinkle 1/2 the sesame seeds over the bottom of a greased jelly-roll pan or cookie sheet.
Pour the syrup over the peanuts and remaining seeds.
Mix with a fork, and scrape into the prepared pan.
Spread and flatten with the back of a greased spoon.
Cool, and cut into large bars.
