Poppy seeds don't keep well once they are ground so make sure that the ground poppy seeds you buy are fresh. Otherwise it is best to grind your own poppy seeds, which you can do in an electric spice grinder.

Method Prep:20min › Ready in:20min
Grind the poppy seeds in a spice grinder.
Toast walnuts in a non greased frying pan till fragrant.
Place poppy seeds and walnuts in your food processor bowl and let the machine run till the walnuts are pulverised. With the machine running add honey in a thin stream till the mixture holds together. Taste for sweetness and add more honey if desired. If the mixture is sweet enough but still dry and crumbly, add water, 1 tablespoon at a time.
Shape small truffles with moist hands. Place sesame seeds on a small plate and dredge truffles till evenly coated. Place truffles in mini paper cups.
Store in an airtight tin so the truffles stay moist.
