Well, apparently no one has tried it. Maybe someone will come along later today.

I found quite a few recipes for it...using plain and flavored gelatine, cherry soda, water, and anise. I'll try it later!

Well, I made some today. I'm letting it set in the fridge. I'll let everyone know how it turns out!

Based on the ingredient quantities (4 envelopes Knox gelatine, 3 packages Jell-O, 4 cups water, and 2 teaspoons anise flavoring) it should have set up like Knox blox.

And the sad part is, I don't like Knox Blox anymore!

I looked into make liqourice one time and I found a recipe that was a cooked sugar recipe then had flour added to it after it came up to the desired temp...that one seemed right to me because I think the flour would achieve that liqourice texture that normal sugar candies can't...

I've never tried making it. I am a pretty good baker, but a bit of a dud when it comes to making candy, so if it is something I can easily buy, I usually do that rather than attempt to cook it.
