 Ingredients List

  • 2 tb Butter
  • 2 ts Butter
  • 2 c Sugar
  • 1 ts Salt
  • 1 c Light corn syrup
  • 1 ts Vanilla extract
  • Food coloring as desired


Lightly butter a jelly-roll pan. In a 3-quart microwave-safe casserole
with high sides, mix sugar, salt, syrup, and 1 cup hot water. Cook on HIGH
until boiling, about 8 minutes. Stir. Cook until mixture reaches 260F on a
candy thermometer, about 15 to 20 minutes. When the bubbling stops, stir in
2 tablespoons butter, the vanilla, and food color. Pour into prepared pan.
Cool about 5 minutes. Lightly butter hands; gather one sixth of taffy into
a ball. Pull until taffy holds its shape in a 1/2-inch thick strand. With
buttered shears, cut into 1-inch lengths. Wrap each piece in plastic wrap.

Note: Other flavorings can be used. Add according to taste.
