This taffy has a satisfying tang that hits the tongue just before the sweetness.
- 2 cups sugar
- 2 cups light corn syrup
- 1 (6 ounce) can frozen orange juice concentrate, undiluted
- 1 pinch salt
- 1 cup half-and-half cream
- 1⁄2 cup butter or 1⁄2 cup margarine
- In a heavy saucepan, combine first four ingredients. Cook and stir over medium heat until sugar is dissolved. Bring to a rapid boil and cook until a candy thermometer reads 245° (firm-ball stage). Add cream and butter; heat and stir until mixture reaches 245° again. Pour into a greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. pan; cool. When cool enough to handle, roll into 1/2-in. logs or 1-in. balls. Wrap individually in foil or waxed paper; twist ends.
Absolutely terrible. I made this 3 times before I realized that it was the recipe itself that was garbage.
This is so much better than commercial candy that you buy. It has a mild buttery orange flavor - not imitation tasting. I halved this recipe and it still made plenty. I think this would be wonderful in a gift basket. I think it would be helpful to have an extra pair of hands because it does take some time to wrap these but it is well worth it!
