Tis the season to be.......
I continue to slowly work my way into the holiday spirit! Last night I made Anise Rock Candy, a recipe that originated from my Grandmother and evolved thanks to efforts made by myself and my Aunt.
If anyone is interested in making some really yummy candy that is extremely easy, here you go!
Kimberly's Anise Candy
3 3/4 Cup white sugar
1 1/4 Cup corn syrup
1 Cup water
1 full bottle of Anise flavoring
Food coloring of choice
Combine first 3 ingredients and boil to 300° F stirring occasionally
Remove from heat and add anise and desired fool coloring (Be CAREFUL it spurts when you add the Anise and coloring.)
Beat well and pour onto XXX sugar covered sheets.
Score the candy into bite size pieces with a kitchen knife once it starts to stiffen.
Cover with more XXX sugar.
Allow the candy to completely Cool and break into pieces, using the scored lines.
Store in airtight container.
