Taffy is not my friend

So as the beans were simmering away I decided the "perfect thing to do on a cold day" was to make TAFFY. I was wrong, very wrong. It is sticky and burny stuff. We threw the whole mess out. As I was cleaning up I discovered that the candy thermometer was in fact damaged goods. So maybe, just maybe, this failure only means I need a new candy thermometer. Hmmm. I guess the question is do I really want to try sticky and burny again? And will the kids be so good natured about the awful mess that made them stick to the counter a second time?

  1. I'd go for caramels first. There's none of the the burny, pulling nonsense and homemade caramels are so good, even if they are too soft or too chewy.
