I have done this in Lemon and will try cinnamon soon.  I just got my cinnamon oil.  It works great.  I just pour mine onto a buttered sheet pan so it is easier to cut.

Anise Candy Recipe -<B>Meet the Cook:</B> Making this old-fashioned hard candy has become an annual Christmas project for me since I first prepared this recipe at the home of a friend who made candy for a shop.

Rock candy is a tradition in my family to have every Christmas. This recipe is simple, makes a rather small batch, and works with any flavored oil.

The perfect homemade Christmas present. This hard candy has spiced flavors like cinnamon, butter rum, wintergreen, clove and anise, but can easily be switched to fruity flavors by using different oils.
