Honey Taffy Recipe

Use this taffy recipe to add a taste of honey to a candy classic.

How long has it been since you’ve had a good old-fashioned taffy pull? Well that’s too long!

This recipe was published in 1921.

What You’ll Need:

  • 2 cups of sugar
  • 3/4 cup of honey
  • 1 cup of water
  • 2 tablespoons of butter

Honey Taffy Instructions:

  1. Combine the sugar, honey and water in a saucepan and cook until it reaches 278 degrees F, or the soft-crack stage. (The soft-crack stage is when a bit of the syrup is dropped into cold water and it forms solid threads that are flexible, not brittle. The threads can be bent slightly without breaking).
  2. While heating the mixture stir constantly until the sugar is dissolved, and then stir occasionally to prevent scorching.
  3. Remove from heat and stir in the butter. Stir as little as possible - only enough to mix in the butter.
  4. Pour the candy into greased pans, and allow to cool down until cool enough to handle with bare hands.
  5. Gather the taffy into a ball and pull it repeatedly until it becomes somewhat firm and light in color. (This recipe makes a somewhat soft taffy, so it won’t become very firm as you pull it.)
  6. Stretch the taffy out into a long rope and cut into bite-sized pieces with a pair of scissors. Wrap each piece of taffy in waxed paper.
