Black Licorice Toffee: Mary Bench

Either you love it or you hate it…well…I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE black licorice of any sort.  Plain black licorice, ice-cream, jelly beans…you name it and I will eat it and LOVE every ounce of it.  My friends mom made these a few years ago and I just found the recipe again.  They are absolutely delicious (that is if you like black licorice).   Do you love it?

1 Cup butter
1 can sweetened condensed milk
2 cups sugar
2 tsp anise or licorice oil
1 1/2 light corn syrup
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp black paste

Use some butter to coat pan.  Add milk, syrup, salt sugar and butter.  Cook over medium heat, stir constantly up to 240 at sea level.  Stir to medium firmness.  Remove from heat, add paste, and oil.  Stir.  Pour into 9×13 pan.

I'm a mommy who has the privilege of staying home with my three little mouths to feed and two big mouths who love to eat. I'm a believer in moderation so all of these might not be the healthiest recipes, but there is a variety and I believe in eating that way and not leaving anything out. I love good food, I like to cook, I'm not that great at it but I'm always up to try new things, share recipes and eat some more!! These are a collection of random recipes that I have in stored in a bunch of different places...this is my attempt to become more organized, so enjoy and let me know if any of these are yummy to you.
