    Rollin in the Dough!'s Note:

    I make these every year for Christmas candy and every March for my uncle on his birthday! I get requests for the recipe EVERY time I make these and always have to hide some when I take to family parties so the people who arrive late can have some too! Very easy!

      * This caramel is soft and chewy. If you would like it more firm, cook until about 244 degrees. I find that using the brand Karo for the corn syrup works best, because some of the "off" brands contain water in the ingredients*.

      I am making these for my candy bags during the holidays so I made a practice batch just to be sure...I have a new fav! I always see these in boutiques and buy a few @ 50 cents each!!! Now I can have as many as I want! I have tried several of Rollin's recipes and have loved them all. Thank you

      These candies are good and the kids scoffed them up as fast as I could cut them. I had mine on the stove till the temp reached 235, the soft ball stage, and when cut the consistency was that of a taffy more than a caramel but still good though a stronger anise flavor would have suited us more. Made for PAC, Fall '09.

      Great recipe, thanks! Made them for my DH who loves caramels and licorice, so this one made him happy :) As I didn't find Karo Syrup here I used brown rice syrup which turned out fine. Thanks for posting this!
