    jennisue's Note:

    If you like Salt water taffies but don't want to go to the beach to get it, then try this recipe. It's also great to do with kids. They can help you pull the taffy. If you want a choc. flavor, then you need to go to a candy store to get the extract for it. do not use baking choc.

      I didnt try this but My recipe looks identical except for I add either 1/4 tsp oil of peppermint or 1 tsp peppermint extract (or flavoring of your choice) I agree with gators mom and say too much flavoring. Again mine is the same with half the flavoring and it is phenomenal. Thanks

      My husband and I made this and were not happy with the results. I think there is too much flavouring added. And it just wasn't what we expected. It's not the first time I've made candy, so that isn't it. I wouldn't make this again.
