I have found this recipe on caramels with liquorice made from honey and white chocolate on the blog called Klidmoster. And as I still had some white chocolate left from my Christmas marathon of confect creation, I decided to try the recipe out.
I had wanted to this for some time, but the raw liquorice powder was SOLD OUT at my local tea pusher, and they first got a new shipping last week !!!!
Normally I am not "mixing bowl licker", but this time very single drop of the caramel mass did not to waste, but ended up in my mouth. Uuuuhmmmm :-) FANTASTIC TASTE. And a BIG THANK YOU to Klidmoster for sharing her caramel recipe with the rest of us with a "sweet tooth".
Today I brought some of these caramels with me to work for sharing with some colleagues. My Danish colleagues also found them great tasting and planned to try them in the week-end. However, my foreign colleagues either rejected to taste them or tasted with them with some sort of dislike. These non-Danish colleagues simply do not understand this liquorice gene of us Danes !!!! And we as Danes do not understand this liquorice dislike of foreigner, but perhaps where is not enough liquorice in the world for the majority of people to get a craving for liquorice ?
Perhaps I would like to increased the lemon taste next time, when I make these caramels with 1-2 drops of lemon flavour ?
