Directions

  1. Butter a 15x10x1-inch baking pan; set pan aside. Butter the sides of a heavy 1-1/2-quart saucepan. In the saucepan combine maple-flavored syrup, sugar, corn syrup, and water. Cook over medium heat until boiling, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon to dissolve sugar. This should take about 7 minutes. Avoid splashing mixture on sides of pan. Carefully clip candy thermometer to side of pan.
  2. Cook over medium-low heat, without stirring, until the thermometer registers 265 degree F, hard-ball stage. Mixture should boil at a moderate, steady rate over the entire surface. Reaching hardball stage should take 35 to 40 minutes. This taffy mixture fills a 1-1/2-quart saucepan, so watch it carefully as it cooks.
  3. Remove saucepan from heat; remove candy thermometer from saucepan. Stir in the 2 tablespoons butter. Pour the mixture into prepared baking pan. Cool until taffy mixture can be handled easily. This should take about 15 minutes.
  4. Butter hands; twist and pull candy until it turns a creamy color and is stiff and quite difficult to pull. This should take about 10 minutes. Candy is ready to snip if it cracks when tapped on work surface.
  5. Divide the candy into fourths; twist and pull each piece into a long strand about 1/2 inch thick. With buttered scissors, snip each strand of taffy into bite-size pieces. Wrap each piece in clear plastic wrap. Makes about 80 pieces or 1-1/4 pounds.
