Steps for licorice caramel sauce:

  1. Finely chop the licorice candy and put it in a thick-bottomed saucepan together with cream, milk, sugar, syrup and salt.
  2. Heat the sauce over medium heat and stir occasionally until the licorice candy has melted.
  3. Bring to a boil and simmer, stirring, for 5-10 minutes until the sauce begins to thicken.
  4. Remove the pan from the heat and possibly add a few drops of black food coloring if you want the sauce completely black.
