      I've never made taffy before and have always been a little afraid of candy-making, but this recipe worked remarkably well! I used Watkins cherry flavor and red food coloring (to make it pink). Pulling the taffy wasn't terribly complicated, but it was a lot of physical work. I basically pulled the warm mixture into a rope, folded it over on itself, then pulled again, folded it, etc. It was very sticky and I kept having to butter my hands, but after a while it started to get less sticky. You know it's almost ready when you don't need to butter your hands anymore. I shared this with my co-workers and they loved it and kept coming back for more. It is quite delicious and addicting!
