If your kids' exposure to taffy is limited to the neon kind at the drugstore with about ten ingredients you can't pronounce, maybe it's time to host an old fashioned taffy pull.
Cindy of Skip to My Lou gave homemade taffy a whirl at her house. With her usual humor she writes: If you are alarmed by red dye, excessive amounts of sugar and under age workers turn away now!
If you're ready to proceed after her disclaimer, head to Skip to My Lou for Cindy's recipe and tips for making homemade taffy with kids. This looks like a ton of fun for a snowy afternoon playdate, party activity or to make as a gift before a holiday (adjust your flavors and colors accordingly).
