Honey Taffy is super easy to make… there’s only one ingredient.
Today is the last day of #CookoutWeek, and I wanted to create something red, white, and blue that is perfect for the 4th of July. Our sponsor The French Farm sent me some delicious honey, which is perfect for this recipe.
I added in some food coloring to create a red, white, and blue swirled taffy, but you could use whatever colors blow your skirt. Or, leave it honey-colored.
You could also add in a few drops of extract to create a tasty flavored taffy. Personally, I like the plain honey flavor.
This recipe is super easy to make, as long as you have a candy thermometer. When you heat the honey and then pull it to introduce air, the texture becomes deliciously soft and chewy.

- 1 cup honey
- gel food coloring (optional)
- Heat honey in a medium-sized saucepan to 280 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Pour honey onto a parchment-covered cookie sheet. Allow to cool for 20 minutes.
- Divide honey into three pieces. Pull each piece for 3-5 minutes to introduce air. The candy will lighten significantly. Make sure your pulls are all in the same direction.
- When the candy is a light tan color, introduce food coloring if desired and twist into several long snakes.
- Refrigerate for at least 2 hours, and then cut into pieces. Wrap into waxed paper or parchment paper for storage.
