How to Make Homemade Taffy

Step-by-Step

  • 1Mix together all ingredients except vanilla.
    Stir over low heat until sugar is dissolved.
    Bring to a boil, without stirring further.
    When mixture reaches the hard ball stage (265 degrees - when a small piece dropped into cold water forms a hard ball).
    Remove from heat, stir in vanilla and pour into buttered pan.
  • 2Butter hands. (keep hands thoroughly buttered during the pulling process. You can get blisters if you do not!!) When taffy is cool enough to handle (but not too cool!), cut in long pieces and pull and fold with a partner until candy becomes satiny, stiff and light in color (about 10 to 15 minutes).
    Finished strips should be pulled to about 1/2 inch wide. Cut in lengths of 1 12 inches and wrap individual pieces in waxed paper.
