  • In a large heavy pan melt butter on low-med heat; add sweet cond milk, Karo syrup, sugar and salt.
  • Place a candy thermometer on side of pan, be careful to not touch bottom of pan.
  • Stirring CONSTANTLY, cook on medium heat to 234 degrees.

  • Add Anise extract and black food coloring paste.
  • Pour into a buttered 9x13" pan.

  • * 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*.
