So after eating a few ‘black cat’ lollies I decided I MUST make a sweet treat with this flavor. Black cats would have to be one of my most favorite lollies ever!
As to what form of dessert was going to be an interesting one and I didn’t want the anisette flavor to be too savory so I opted to pair the lovely aromatic flavor of vanilla.
A cake, pie, slice and pudding was experimented, where the pie was the winner. Thus my Anisette Vanilla Marshmallow Pie was born. Now I must say the final outcome of this sweet treat is definitely only for anisette / liquorice fans. But if that is you then you will LOVE this treat.
