This taffy has a satisfying tang that hits the tongue just before the sweetness.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. 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!
