Step 1

Grease square pan, 8x8x2 inches, with butter.

Step 2

Mix sugar and cornstarch in 2-quart saucepan.

Step 3

Stir in corn syrup, water, butter and salt. Heat to boiling over medium heat, stirring constantly.

Step 4

Cook, without stirring, to 265ºF on candy thermometer or until small amount of mixture dropped into cup of very cold water forms a hard ball that holds its shape but is pliable; remove from heat. Stir in vanilla.

Step 5

Pour into pan.

Step 6

When taffy is just cool enough to handle, pull it with lightly buttered hands until satiny, light in color and stiff.

Step 7

Pull into long strips 1/2 inch wide.

Step 8

Cut strips into 1 1/2-inch pieces, using scissors. (For easier cutting, wipe scissors with vegetable oil.)

Step 9

Wrap pieces individually in plastic wrap or waxed paper (candy must be wrapped to hold its shape).
