Click here for a printable version of this idea

2 cup Sugar
1 cup Corn syrup
1 1/2 tsp. Salt
1 1/2 cup Water
2 tbsp. Butter
7 drops food coloring
1/4 tsp. flavored oil (peppermint, banana, etc.)
Combine sugar, corn syrup, salt and water in 2 quart saucepan. Cook slowly, stirring constantly, until sugar dissolves. Cook to hard ball stage (260 F) without stirring. Remove from heat, stir in remaining ingredients. Pour into buttered 15x10x1 inch pan. Cool until comfortable to handle. Butter hands and gather taffy into ball and pull. When candy is light in color and gets hard to pull, cut into fourths. Pull each piece into a long strand about 1/2 inch thick. With buttered scissors, quickly snip into bite sized pieces. Wrap each piece in waxed paper. Makes 24 servings (1 1/4 lb.)
