Recipe by CJAY8248

From my collection of handwritten recipes 1970's. Note: No time is given for cooking. Use a candy thermometer and cook until it reads brittle stage. Pulling depends on how many are doing it.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook sugars, molasses and water together until brittle over low heat, stirring frequently to prevent burning. Remove from heat, add butter, soda and salt, stirring just enough to mix. Pour into large greased pan and allow to stand until cool enough to handle. Butter fingers and pull until firm and light yellow. Stretch into a rope, twist and cut into 1" lengths.
