Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
vegetable oil, for oiling
200ml water
4 tablespoons powdered gelatine
40g cornflour
250g granulated sugar
150ml golden syrup
150ml golden syrup
150ml condensed milk
85ml black treacle
120g unsalted butter
pinch salt
3-4 tablespoons black colouring
2 teaspoons licorice oil flavouring

Method

  1. Lightly oil 2 large baking trays and set aside.
  2. Place the water in a small bowl and sprinkle over the gelatine powder. Leave to soak for 5 minutes, then add the cornflour and mix well.
  3. Combine the sugar, golden syrup, condensed milk, black treacle, butter and salt in a saucepan. Place over the heat and stir until the sugar has dissolved. Stir in the gelatine mixture and mix well.
  4. Bring to the boil and insert a sugar thermometer. Cook the mixture until it reaches 121°C. While the mixture is cooking, add enough black colouring to achieve the right colour.
  5. Remove from the heat, add the licorice oil flavouring and mix well, then pour onto the prepared baking trays and leave for about 30 minutes until set and firm.
  6. Unmould the licorice and cut into long strips about 5 mm in width on a chopping board. Roll them into spiral wheels then place them on baking paper and leave to cool completely for 1 hour. Store in an airtight container in a cool dry place for up to a week.
