Dried root powder:

  • You will have to use licorice root powder and nothing else. Using anything else will spoil the taste of the candy.


Making a paste:

  • You have to get the consistency of the molasses and flour mixture right. Keep adding flour till you get a very thick and workable paste with the mixture.


Shape the candies:

  • Once the dough forms well you can shape the dough into long tubes. These can be of ½ inches thickness and of 6 inches in length.

Your homemade Licorice candy  will be ready to be served once they harden.
