    This recipe brings back such wonderful memories from my childhood. This was a special treat that we would make with my mother. I also made it with my kids when they were all home. To this day they want to make it when they visit. I love the taste of this wonderful taffy. It's the same recipe I use except mine does not call for the unsalted butter. Mine just calls butter. My recipe is at least 100 years old as it was handed down from my great-great-great grandmother. Glad to see it on here! Thanks for posting it!
