This Honey Taffy recipe is the perfect activity to keep the kids busy on a cold November night, plus after all of the hard work stretching and pulling the taffy you have a sweet treat to enjoy! Plus, they make great handmade gifts for the holiday season!
- 1 ½ cups of Ontario Honey Creations Spring, Summer, or Fall Blossom Honey
- Cooking Spray
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and lightly coat with cooking spray.
- Pour honey into a medium saucepan and cook over medium heat, uncovered, until honey begins to boil, about 7-8 minutes. Continue cooking until a candy thermometer registers 280°F, about 10 minutes. Quickly pour mixture onto prepared pan, spreading evenly. Cool for 20 minutes.
- Lightly spray your hands with cooking spray. Using your hands, fold the honey over itself to form a ball. Stretch honey into a long strand (about 2 feet long). Double strand back onto itself twice, pressing ends together. Continue pulling and folding honey for about 5 minutes or until the color changes from dark amber to a soft tan. Wrap in plastic wrap coated with cooking spray, and chill for 10 minutes.
- Coat a knife with cooking spray, and cut the taffy into 4 equal pieces. Roll each piece into a 12-inch log. Cut each log into 6 pieces. Roll each piece into a log, and wrap each piece in confectionary paper, cellophane wrappers, or wax paper.
