Has no one realized that 265 degrees is WAY too high for taffy? I tried it without thinking and ended up getting "taffy" that wouldn't even bend. It shattered into pieces. I cut my losses and called it "painted glass candy".

Note to Self: Do NOT use a teflon covered pan to pour this out on. We used a teflon covered pan that had a couple of scratches on it. The candy got into those scratches and pulled that teflon right on up. Ruined out batch, but we pulled it anyway for practice. It pulled great. Its amazing how it turns white as you pull it. What we ate out of the cooking pan (after it cooled) had a wonderful flavor! We will definately do this again, but using a glass cake pan to cool it in.

Paintedglass is right- it should be at Soft ball stage. I have a glump of stretched hardened candy and three blisters..... :(

I tried to make this recipe 2x and both times it came out like a thick liquid that was completely non workable. I was very disappointed with myself. I am sure it is my my own doing. I would apreciate any feed back. Thanks. Chrlee

First time I ever made taffy, and it was great! It was very time consuming, (yes the recipe states that I just didn't plan well) and I dont think we pulled it enough because it ended up a little on the harder side (like laffy taffy). But it was AWESOME! We did the mint flavor. I will be making this again tonight but I think we will half the recipe!

Very good! We spilt the batch and made half orange and half peppermint. It made a nice variety.

WE LOVED IT... we did the same as Kerr(ie)bear, cutting them up and wrapping them... everyone in our nutrition class loved them.

Here's a tip: make this with a buddy! The recipe was excellent, but it took me FOREVER on my own to cut the taffy and wrap each piece individually. Use this as a bonding experience!

I had a hard time getting it to the correct temp. After getting it to the right temp I had an easier time. Electric stoves. The cooling process was fine and pulling the taffy. I cut it to bite sized pieces and wrapped them in wax paper. Thanks for the great recipe. I will make it again using different flavorings.
