Both kids and adults will enjoy stretching the honey into taffy, and the longer you stretch the honey, the easier and more pliable the taffy becomes. To avoid a sticky situation, make sure any surface you set the taffy on is thinly coated with cooking spray. You can also wear latex gloves (coated with canola oil) to make the pulling a little easier.
Ingredients
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 pound honey (about 1½ cups)
Instructions
  1. Step 1
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper; lightly coat with cooking spray.
  3. Step 2
  4. Place honey in a medium saucepan. Cook over medium-low heat, uncovered, until honey begins to boil (about 8 minutes). Continue cooking until a candy thermometer registers 280°, about 10 minutes. Quickly pour mixture onto prepared pan, spreading evenly. Cool 20 minutes.
  5. Step 3
  6. Lightly spray your hands with cooking spray. Using your hands, fold the honey over itself to form a ball. Stretch honey into a long strand (about 2 feet long). Double strand back onto itself twice, pressing ends together. Continue pulling and folding honey for about 5 minutes or until the color changes from dark amber to a soft tan. Wrap in plastic wrap coated with cooking spray, and chill for 10 minutes.
  7. Step 4
  8. Coat a knife with cooking spray, and cut the taffy into 4 equal pieces. Roll each piece into a 12-inch log. Cut each log into 6 pieces. Roll each piece into a log, and wrap each piece in confectionary paper, cellophane wrappers, or wax paper.
