I am a black licorice fanatic. I like real black licorice the best but honestly any black licorice, even artificially flavored, will do.
Well, I was bemoaning the fact to a friend that it is getting harder and harder to find bags of all black Jelly Belly jelly beans and black twizzlers. Nice friend that she is she happened upon a huge stash at CVS and bought me 4 jumbo packs. I know from experience that they don't keep well and get stale awfully fast. I like my twizzlers soft and fresh!
So what creative treats could I make with this hoard? I was think cut up into to cookies. But what kind? Can't picture them in oatmeal or as a sub. for choc. chips. I have heard of making apple vodka with sour apple jolly ranchers. What do you think about making licorice infused vodka? Would it work? Any other good ideas?
