Beware: The hot candy mixture may splatter! Have a cold, wet cloth handy to apply to the skin if needed.
Pulling taffy is lots of fun, but it's best to have a team to help you with the task. Recruit parents, friends and, yes, even pesky siblings, to take a turn.
The taffy will become lighter and shinier as you pull, thanks to the many tiny sugar crystals that form as the candy cools.
