How to Make Pulled Molasses Candy

Step-by-Step

  1. Boil the molasses in a deep vessel to keep from boiling over. Boil steadily, stirring from the sides and bottom. When a little poured in a glass of cold water becomes brittle, it is done. Pour into a buttered dish.
  2. Wash your hands real clean to be ready to pull the candy. As soon as the cooked molasses is cool enough to handle, roll it in a long roll. Butter your hands so the candy won't stick to them.
  3. Pull the candy into a long ropelike length. Then fold it back to half the length, roll it together and pull it again. This is called "pulling the candy". Do this until it changes to a light color but is still soft enough to handle.
  4. Pull to a long, ropelike length, cut in six inch lengths and twist. This candy looks like stick candy.
