    Licorice Toffee


    1 can sweetened condensed milk

    2 c. sugar

    1/4 tsp. salt

    3/4 tsp. anise oil

    1 c. butter

    1 1/2 c. white Karo syrup


    Combine all of the above except anise oil in heavy saucepan. Stirring constantly, cook to 234º. Remove from stove and add licorice flavoring and about 3/4 tsp. black food paste color. Mix well, pour into an 8" X 8" buttered pan. Cool. Cut into bite size pieces. When cook, wrap in waxed paper and store in tightly covered container. This toffee is better than the best quality sold at any candy counter!

    Licorice Caramels


    * 1 cup butter

    * 2 cups white sugar

    * 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk

    * 1 cup corn syrup

    * 1/8 teaspoon salt

    * 1 teaspoon anise extract

    * black paste food coloring


    1. Line a 9x9 inch dish with buttered foil.

    2. In a large saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Stir in sugar, milk, corn syrup and salt. Bring to a boil, stirring frequently. Continue to heat, without stirring, to 242 to 248 degrees F (116 to 120 degrees C), or until a small amount of syrup dropped into cold water forms a firm but pliable ball. Remove from heat and stir in anise and food coloring. Pour into prepared pan. Let cool completely, several hours.

    3. To cut, turn out of pan and peel away foil. Cut with a buttered knife. Wrap pieces in waxed paper or candy wrappers.
