Pull Taffy

Pull Taffy was a great sweet treat when we used to have sleep-overs of friends and everyone could help pull and cut the candies (less work for us!).

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/4 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 T vinegar
  • 1/4 t baking soda
  • A few drops of vanilla

Mix sugar, water, and corn syrup together and stir over low heat until the sugar dissolves, then allow to cook with stirring until a candy thermometer registers 270ºF, or hard crack stage.

Remove from heat and add vinegar, soda and a few drops of vanilla. Pour onto a buttered platter.

When cool enough to handle, pull until the taffy is white and porous. Cut into pieces with scissors.
