Homemade Pulled Taffy!
So much fun! It was easy to put together, cooled quickly, and was fun to pull.
There was only one problem... The stuff absolutely refused to stiffen up! It is supposed to stiffen as it cools and is pulled, but after 40+ minutes of pulling (and pulling... and pulling...) I finally gave up and admitted defeat.
However, they tell me it still tasted good, and it has stiffened up a bit over time. I figure that I either added too much butter during the pulling, or I didn't get the temp high enough (though I used a candy thermometer to ensure proper temps).
But it was fun nonetheless, and I hope to try it again sometime!
