Black Homemade Licorice

Christmas Goodie for week #4. My dear son #3' fiancee and I made this on Saturday afternoon. It makes a big batch.

1. Melt 2 sticks (1 cup) of butter in 3 qt or larger pan
Add 2 cups sugar
1 1/2 cup corn syrup
1 cup (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk

Heat to boiling, keep stirring. Keep at a slow boil. It will turn a brownish caramel color. Don’t let scorch.

2. Add 1 bottle anise oil flavoring and 1/2 a container black food color paste ir gel AFTER soft ball state is reached on a candy thermometer.

3. Pour into a 9” x 13” well buttered pan.

4. Cool 2 hours before cutting with pizza cutter. Wrap individual pieces in wax paper

This recipe came from good friend Robynne! Thanks Robynne.
