To make Taffy:

2 Cups light corn syrup--2 Cups sugar--2/3 Cup Water--1/4 t. salt--Flavored Extracts--Food Coloring (Optional)
We used Vanilla Extract, and no food coloring.

1. Butter a Cookie Sheet

2. Combine ingredients in saucepan and boil on medium heat to 250 degrees F on a candy Thermometer, or until a drop of the candy gets hard instantly in a cup of room temperature water.

3. Pour mixture into a buttered pan until it is cool enough to handle.

4. Butter your hands, and start pulling the Taffy. Pull until it is a shiny color. The more you pull it, the better it will taste.

5. Roll it out and cut into bite size pieces.

6. Wrap with wax paper.

We had a lot of fun making it, but it was really hard. Too hard. I was worried that it was going to ruin Clint's dental work, so we threw it out. But it was fun to make. I am now on the lookout for a better recipe where the Taffy is not so hard. It was tasty, though. I guess you could just suck on it....
