Equal parts ground licorice root and ground anise root.
Molasses
Brown and/or White flour
Powdered sugar

Directions:
Directions:
Warm up about 1 cup of molasses. Add approximately 1 tsp each licorice and anise root, or to taste. Add flour till you have a consistency you can roll into tubes. You will have a very stiff dough. This is a get-your-hands-messy job. Too much whole wheat flour will give it a bitter taste. (I use about half hard white flour and regular white flour.) Don't let it cool too long or it will be hard to roll. Cut tubes into desired length. Can rollin powdered sugar to prevent sticking and for a prettier look. We like to roll into small balls and call them reindeer droppings for Christmas gifts. Candy will harden more when cool.
