Licorice Caramels

Cooking Recipes Catalogue

Caramels made with sweetened condensed milk and corn syrup are flavored with anise extract and colored black.

INGREDIENTS (for 6 servings):


  • Line a 9x9 inch dish with buttered foil.
  • 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.
  • To cut, turn out of pan and peel away foil. Cut with a buttered knife. Wrap pieces in waxed paper or candy wrappers.
