Old Fashioned Molasses Taffy
Have an old fashioned taffy pull with this delicious old time recipe. I used to make this 40 years ago when I was 9!
Grease a baking sheet very lightly.
Over medium heat, bring the water, sugar, molasses, and vinegar to a boil in a saucepan.
Cook and stir the sugar until it reaches the “hard ball” stage, which occurs when the temperature reaches 250 to 265 degrees F (121 to 129 degrees C) or until a drop of the syrup dropped into cold water forms a rigid ball.
Add the baking soda and butter after turning the heat off.
Pour the mixture onto the prepared baking sheet and let it cool for 10 to 15 minutes or until it is comfortable to handle.
