Molasses Taffy


  • ½ cup Fancy Molasses
  • 1½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1½ tbsp vinegar
  • ½ cup water
  • ¼ tsp cream of tartar

  • 1/8 tsp baking soda


  1. Place Fancy Molasses, sugar, vinegar and water in a heavy saucepan and cook until a small amount dropped in cold water is brittle (256°F).
