Directions

In a medium, heavy saucepan, combine molasses, granulated and brown sugars and water.

Heat to boiling and stir to dissolve sugars.

Remove from heat, stir in butter, baking soda, and salt.

Immediately pour onto a buttered marble slab or baking sheet.

When cool enough to handle, butter hands and gather taffy into a ball.

Pull taffy between hands and continually stretch and fold again until taffy turns lighter in colour (this can take from 5 to 15 minutes.

Stretch and twist taffy into a rope about 1 inch thick and cut into pieces using buttered scissors.

Wrap each piece in waxed paper.
