Makes 4 dozen pieces
|2/3||cup light corn syrup|
|1-1/2||teaspoons vanilla or desired fruit-flavored extract|
|1/4||teaspoon peppermint oil or desired fruit-flavored oil (optional)|
|Red, blue and other desired food colorings|
- Combine sugar, corn syrup, water and margarine in large saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly, until sugar is dissolved. Continue to boil until mixture reaches firm ball stage (270°F on a candy thermometer).
- Remove saucepan from heat. Stir in desired flavoring and food colorings. (If making more than 1 flavor or color, divide mixture among 2 or 3 greased bowls before flavoring and coloring.) Let taffy mixture stand until cool enough to handle.
- Pull taffy with well greased hands until it is light and no longer shiny. Stretch into rope or coil about 1/2 inch in diameter; cut into 3/4-inch pieces with scissors. Individually wrap candies in waxed paper, if desired. Store in airtight container.
