Homemade Rainbow Taffy Recipe!
In a sauce pan combine sugar, corn syrup, and water. Over medium heat, stir until sugar is completely dissolved.
Once sugar is dissolved, turn the heat up to medium high and place in candy thermometer. Heat mix to 270 degrees F.
While mix is coming to temperature, butter a baking dish well and set aside.
Once candy reached 270 degrees F, remove from heat and add in flavoring.
Pour candy into the buttered dish and allow to cool until it can be easily handled.
Cut into equal portions and add colors to each portion.
Butter hands well and begin stretching and pulling the candy. The candy will start out translucent, but will begin to become opaque as you stretch it.
Once completely opaque, roll out into a snake and use a sharp knife or scissors to cut into bite size pieces (make sure your utensil is buttered well).
To prevent sticking, make sure hands and utensils are buttered well before handling the candy!
