Licorice Caramels Recipe
- 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
step 1: Line a 9x9 inch dish with buttered foil.
step 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.
step 3: To cut, turn out of pan and peel away foil. Cut with a buttered knife. Wrap pieces in waxed paper or candy wrappers.
