These delicious treats are a fun cross between caramels and licorice. I always get compliments on them, especially from those who enjoy black licorice. — Paula Fischer, Rapid City, South Dakota

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 teaspoons butter
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3 cups heavy whipping cream, divided
  • 1-1/3 cups light corn syrup
  • 2 teaspoons anise extract
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon red paste food coloring

Directions

  1. Line an 8-in. square pan with foil. Grease the foil with 1-1/2 teaspoons butter; set aside.
  2. In a heavy Dutch oven, combine the sugar, 1-1/2 cups cream and corn syrup. Bring to a boil over medium heat; stirring constantly. Cook and stir until a candy thermometer reads 234° (soft-ball stage). Gradually add remaining cream; return to a boil, stirring constantly, until a candy thermometer reads 248° (firm-ball stage).
  3. Remove from the heat; stir in extract and food coloring. Pour into prepared pan (do not scrape pan). Cool completely before cutting. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Yield: about 1 pound (about 4 dozen).
Editor's Note: We recommend that you test your candy thermometer before each use by bringing water to a boil; the thermometer should read 212°. Adjust your recipe temperature up or down based on your test.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 8, 2012

These are wonderful. I made a lot of them for a party and they were a hit. I wrapped each one in waxed paper which was time consuming, but they are worth it.
