There is actually no actual recipe for 5-Spice powder, it does have to have the Star Anise and Cinnamon to work in more traditional recipes.

The other frequent ingredients used:
Fennel seed
Ground Cloves
Ginger
Licorice
Nutmeg
Sichuan Peppercorns

The theory if that no more than five spices, with the Star Anise and Cinnamon as the main flavors. Incidentally, I am not making this up from pure air, it is based upon information from a cookbook by Eileen Yin-Fei Lo
