Remember taffy-pull parties?…probablynot! But you’ve probably heard of them, well this is the candythat set the theme for those parties. Besides being a fun get-togetherand knowing there’s a sweet treat in store, having a ‘taffy pull’when you’re making taffy is especially helpful because you’llhave someone to help you pull the taffy…and hopefully othersto take over when you both tire out.
– And why do you pull taffy? Pulling taffyaerates it, or incorporates many tiny air bubbles throughoutthe candy. This makes it lighter and chewier. Enjoy!
