Laffy Taffy

Last night the kids, some good friends, and I made taffy. We used this taffy recipe from Skip to my Lou. It is awesome! The taffy is just right – chewy, but doesn’t stick to your teeth. I can see this is going to become a favorite!!

Here’s my notes: It takes a lot longer than you’d think to bring it to 250 degrees. I’d hold the boil for 30 seconds or so next time, maybe – I think I’ll research this a little before we do this again. I think I’ll also cool it faster – put it outside (in the winter) or in the fridge. You’ll use an entire stick of butter between what you use in the recipe and what you’ll use to butter your hands. Well, this was used between four kids and two adults. It pulls into stringy strands that you have to mush back together – this is to be expected. You’ll eat yourself sick…have supper first.

Happy crafting!!!

I think with scott coming the next three days we just might have to try this. It would be fun for both boys and me to make something. I'll go check out the recipe and make sure I have all the ingredients.
Thanks for sharing Kim. I remember making this many moons ago with my old boyfriend and his family. I did say many moons ago, how about many, many, many moons ago.
I'll chat with you later on. Take care Kim. God Bless!!
