4 tablespoons of herb or herbs(in total) in powdered form
1/2-3/4 cup flour preferably fresh ground

Add 4 tsp. of Herb or herbal powder combination in total to the molasses. Stir well to incorporate the powder throughout the mixture.
Add ½ cup of flour to the molasses mixture, and stir in thoroughly. Continue adding flour, a few tablespoons at a time and up to 1 cup total, until a thick, workable paste is formed.
Remove the dough from the pan and place on a flat surface, such as a countertop or cutting board. Shape the licorice candy dough into several long tubes, about ½-inch in thickness and 6 inches in length.
Roll the licorice candy tubes in icing sugar and place onto a cookie sheet to dry. Wait one to two hours for the candy to harden, and then store it in a glass jar or plastic storage bag until ready to eat.
Herbal and nutritional Powder Substitutes Combinations:
Note: These are only a few to get you started
Chamomile Anise: ( a great and healthy relaxing snack! 3 tablespoons of organic chamomile powder or fresh chamomile flowers ground to a powder. I use a electric coffee bean grinder. You can get these inexpensively in a super market.
Eliminate the anise seed powder if you have blood pressure problems add slippery elm bark in its place.
Sore Throat Combo: 1 tsp of each. Licorice root, wild cherry bark, marshmallow root slippery elm bark.
The herbs wild cherry bark, Licorice root,and marshmallow root help with the soothing of the sourness and the slippery elm bark gets to the root of things by providing nutritional supplementation.
