Lion House Taffy


2 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups water
1 cup white corn syrup
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons glycerine (available at drugstores)
2 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon vanilla

Mix sugar, water, corn syrup, salt and glycerine in a heavy saucepan. Bring to a boil and cook until temperature is 258 degrees. Remove from heat and add the butter and vanilla, stirring until the butter is melted. Pour candy onto a buttered cookie sheet. Cool until lukewarm and taffy can be handled comfortably. Wash and dry hands thoroughly. Take a small piece of taffy and stretch and fold repeatedly until the taffy turns white. Form taffy into desired shape. Place on a piece of waxed paper. Makes enough taffy for 10-14 people to share.

  1. Mmm...I love Taffy! I wonder if I could make it with my boys? Can you add flavors to it? Would you add it in at the end?? What do you think? :)

  2. I'm sure you could add color! Anything is better with color! I would add the color when you add the butter and vanilla. Thanks for coming Allison!
