I have always wanted to make liquorice because it is one of my favourite sweets. this Liquorice recipe is best stored in the refrigerator. Enjoy – Eoin

Super soft black liquorice

10g Ground liquorice root

5g Ground star anise (or 1 teaspoon extract)

350g jar of blackstrap molasses

300g flour


Heat molasses once hot add flour and the rest of the ingredients and cook on low for about 20 min be careful it will burn easily. After 20 min pour the mix on to not stick parchment paper. Let cook enough that you can roll it .

Brush a little oil on your work surface divide the dough into ball and roll like you are making a snake with paly dough, to about 1/2 inch thick put on a tray that has been brushed with some oil, so not to stick. place in fridge when cooled cut and enjoy.

Store in fridge for best result


If you can get Ground liquorice root or star anise powered you can always use a coffee or spice grinder to grind them, there are also available on line in spice store
