Any Flavor Taffy


"This recipe is soft and can be made in a wide variety of flavors. I think the secret to the softness is the corn starch. I hope it works out for you."

  1. Butter 2 large baking sheets, and set them aside.
  2. In a medium saucepan, stir together the sugar and cornstarch. Add corn syrup, water, butter and salt, and stir to blend. Bring to a boil over medium heat, and cook until the mixture reads 250 degrees F (120 degrees C) on a candy thermometer. Remove from heat, and immediately stir in the drink mix powder. Quickly pour out onto the prepared baking sheets, and let stand until cool enough to handle.
  3. Grab a few helpers, and butter everyone's hands. Stretch (pull) the taffy until it lightens in color, and becomes firm. Roll into bite size pieces, and wrap in small squares of waxed paper.

This was nothing like taffy! After following steps 1-2, I buttered a baking sheet and poured the liquid taffy onto it, let it sit for about half an hour and finally it turned as solid as rock! ...

Now I know where the name laffy taffy came from! I had a hard time getting any of our burners to heat the mixture over 225 degrees so I had to partially cover the mixture. We took it out right w...

AWESOME!!! I made two batches. The first one turned out a little hard, so I tried to figure out a way to make it a little softer. I used a little more corn syrup and and starch to try and soften...

Super easy and tasty. My kids and I make this all the time. A huge hit at birthday parties, I do the cooking in advance, then let the kids pull it after it cools.
