When mixture cracks in cold water remove from heat and add baking soda and stir THOUROUGHLY you don't want any chunks of baking soda in your candy.

Personal Notes:
For some reason this does not take nearly as long as anise candy. But it is not fool proof and does not always work, me and Becky have not figured out why but it is sometimes delicious and beautiful and sometimes not. But it is a special treat and has always been one of Grandpa's favorites!
