Licorice Love

ok, so you know how much I LOVE licorice.
I tried these two today.

It's ok.....but nothing like Young and Smylie.
I am cooking up a recipe that includes chopped up licorice in it.
I wonder what would happen if I use licorice instead of chocolate 
chips in a simple cookie recipe.
We'll see.

I´m a huge licorice lover, both the sweet Finnish and the salty one. I´ll see if I can send you some along with my zines... :D

Alma, my mom used to make cookies (probably your standard choc. chip recipe) and she put those orange slice candies (i.e. "chuckles"...showing my age. ha!) in them and they were delicious. I see the licorice working out the same, so should be good!Happy baking!!

Yup, another licorice fan here! Gotta admit I still love Good N Plenty. I'll buy myself a box every once a while, and share it with my son, who enjoys licorice, too.

Oooh, I love black licorice. I would LOVE to hear if you make the cookies - maybe I will have to try that myself! I'm imagining a batch of cookies that only I would eat since nobody else in my house cares for the taste (yum!) I've heard of the salty kind, too but haven't seen it here in the US yet.
