Now I know where the name laffy taffy came from! I had a hard time getting any of our burners to heat the mixture over 225 degrees so I had to partially cover the mixture. We took it out right when the thermometer hit 250 and added 2 packs of grape kool aid. We let it cool, and it was still very soft. My kids and I butter our hands and tried to "pull" the taffy, but it wasn't exactly what we had in mind. It was very sticky and even after 30 minutes of pulling it never really firmed up.
We ended up having to put this on wax paper in big globs, and smash it down like laffy taffy.
We had a blast making this, and even though it was very messy and didn't turn out like we had hoped for, the flavor was good and it was a lot of fun to make with the kids.
