  5. 5.Divide tahini mixture between bowls, adding almond milk a tsp at a time (I usually add 2 tsp to the light mixture, and 4 tsp to the cacao mixture) and mix by hand until mixture becomes doughy, sticks together, and can easily be rolled into a ball without breaking.
  6. 6.Prepare two plates for dough rolling, with white sesame seeds in one plate, and black sesame seeds in another.
