Ingredients



Instructions

  1. Mix sugar and cornstarch in a saucepan. Stir in corn syrup, butter, water and salt. Cook over moderate heat until mixture reaches 254 degrees F or until a few drops tested in cold water form a ball which holds its shape.
  2. Remove from heat; add a few drops of food coloring and flavoring extract, and pour onto a buttered platter. Cool until it can be handled comfortably.
  3. Butter your hands and pull the taffy until it is light in color and firm enough to hold a shape. Stretch into a roll about 1 inch in diameter and snip off bits with kitchen shears.
  4. Wrap each piece in wax paper.
