Honey taffy made with local wildflower honey

Honey Taffy Recipe

When I was a kid, my aunt would make these honey-taffy treats that I would horde.  It was unreal. I was like golem from Lord of the Rings.  I would not-so-stealthily steal as many as I could get my hands on.  You'll feel the same way when you try them, trust me.  I just hope that you can show more self-restraint that a seven-year-old-me.  I've made these with all sorts of honey varietals.  From Tupelo Honey, Orange Blossom Honey, Raspberry, or just local wildflower honey, these honey-taffy treats are the bomb.


  • 1 1/2 Cups of Honey
  • Non-Stick Cooking Spray
  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper; lightly coat with cooking spray.
  2. Place honey in a medium saucepan. Cook over medium-low heat, uncovered until honey begins to boil (about 8 minutes). Continue cooking until a candy thermometer registers 280°, about 10 minutes. Quickly pour mixture onto prepared pan, spreading evenly.
  3. Cool 20 minutes.
  4. Lightly spray your hands with cooking spray. Using your hands, fold the honey over itself to form a ball. Stretch honey into a long strand (about 2 feet long). Double strand back onto itself twice, pressing ends together. Continue pulling and folding honey for about 5 minutes or until the color changes from dark amber to a soft tan. Wrap in plastic wrap coated with cooking spray, and chill for 10 minutes.
  5. Coat a knife with cooking spray, and cut the taffy into 4 equal pieces. Roll each piece into a 12-inch log. Cut each log into 6 pieces. Roll each piece into a log, and wrap each piece in the confectionary paper, cellophane wrappers, or wax paper.
