I guess that with the exposure from the DD (congrats on that, by the way) you'd be getting quite a bit in the way of requests for the recipe for this...so I hope I'm not annoying you when I ask if I could please have the recipe?! ;p

Hahah, thanks!

It's the easiest thing ever, but you'll need this amber-like type of sugar (I have no idea what it's called in English).

Plus:
50g granulated sugar
juice from half an orange
cinnamon stick
anise star

...and a cup of fine tea :P

Spread the sugar evenly in the bottom of a heavy bottomed saucepan, pour in the juice, add cinnamon and anise. Bring to a boil, use a silicone spatula to remove the sugar off the sides of the pan. The mixture should become... bubbly ;)

Take the pan off the heat and check if the syrup is thick enough and sticky (please, please, do not touch it with your fingers, it's VERY hot). If it's too runny, heat it up again.

Dip a wooden stick in the syrup and right away in a bowl filled with "amber sugar". Heat the mixture every time the syrup becomes too cold & thick and doesn't seem to hold the sugar. That's it :)

I think I know exactly the stuff...or at least something very similar. Thankyou so much. I imagine his would be best utilized as a fancy garnish rather that a thing just to eat on its own, right? (I have a very sweet tooth, having said that ;p)

Hahahah! Well, I've made lots of these along with gingrebreads as an addition to Christmas presents, so I don't really know if someone ate it on it's own :P Probably yes, 'cause I once did... ;P (the syrup i soooo tasty!)
