For the Gelatin Mixture:
Pour the water into a medium bowl. Evenly sprinkle the gelatin over the water. Allow the gelatin to soak up the water. While the gelatin is forming make the sugar syrup.
For the Sugar Syrup:
Add water and sugar to a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil and simmer 5 minutes. Add gelatin to the hot mixture. Stir until the gelatin is completely dissolved. Add the food color and licorice flavor. Stir to combine. Make sure the gelatin is dissolved. Pour into the prepared pan, cover and refrigerate until firm (preferably overnight).
When the gelatin is firm take (pull) out of the pan and lay on a large cutting board. Pour enough sugar into TWO baking sheets to cover the bottom. Dip cookie cutter in sugar, press into the gelatin.
