Licorice Drops

Category: Candy

 Ingredients List

  • 1 c Granulated sugar
  • 1/4 c Brown sugar
  • 1/4 c Water
  • 1/4 c Light corn syrup
  • 1 tb Black food colouring
  • 1/4 ts Anise extract or pulverized
  • -anise seeds


Put the sugars, water and corn syrup into a pot, set the pot over medium
heat and stir. When the batch has boiled for the first time, wash the
sugar crystals down from the sides of the pot. Put the thermometer in the
pot and cook without stirring to 290F (143C) [soft crack stage]. Take the
pot from the heat and add the food colouring and the anise flavouring and
stir them in gently.

With a teaspoon, drop round patties about the size of quarters onto a
greased baking sheet. If the candy in the pot gets too firm for spooning,
reheat it gently until it softens.

Cool the drops completely but not in the refrigerator or the pieces will
stick. Wrap the drops individually in wax paper or cellophane.
