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 or balls. Too much whole wheat flour will give it a bitter taste. I use mostly white flour. Let cool just enough to handle. Cut tubes into desired lengths or roll into small balls. (This is how we make Reindeer Droppings) Roll in powdered sugar. Let cool and candy will harden.
