First spray a 8 inch square baking dish with cooking spray and set aside.
Bring butter, sugar, syrup, milk, molasses and salt to a boil over high heat in a 2 quart saucepan equipped with a Candy Thermometer. Cook until temperature reaches 250 degrees.
Remove from heat and stir in flour, anise extract and food color. Mix well and pour into prepared baking dish. Let cool 30 to 45 minutes. Unmold onto a cutting board when warm enough to handle but not hot. Using kitchen shears cut into 1 inch wide strips and using your hands roll and form the strips into 1/2 inch round ropes. Cut each rope into 1 inch long pieces or "Nibs" and let finish cool and harden slightly stirring once in a while to avoid sticking together.
*for 1/2 cup Sweetened Condensed Milk add 1/4 cup hot water, 1/2 cup sugar and 1/2 cup powdered milk (like Carnation) to a blender and mix well until dissolved.*
***for Black Food Coloring- mix 1/2 tsp. red, 1/2 tsp. blue and 1/2 tsp yellow food colors together for black.***
