Homemade Chocolate Salt Water Taffy


Number of serving: 6
1/3 Cup Sugar

1/8 Cup Corn Syrup

1/4 Cup Water

2-1/2 oz Ghirardelli Unsweetened Chocolate

1/4 teaspoon Salt

1 tablepsoon Organic Unsalted Butter

1/4 teaspoon Real Vanilla


  • Add the sugar, corn syrup, water, Ghirardelli chocolate and salt over high heat stirring constantly until your candy thermometer reads 260º degrees or until a small amount placed in cold water forms into a hard ball.
  • Remove from heat add the butter and vanilla extract and stir well. Grease a dish generously with butter and pour the mixture and allow to cool.
  • Grease your hands with butter. When the taffy has cooled enough to handle take the taffy and pull until it has a satiny gloss, about 10 minutes.
  • The reason for pulling the taffy is to incorporate many tiny air bubbles throughout the candy. This makes it lighter and chewier.
  • Make a 1/2 inch diameter rope with the taffy, cut with a greased knife or scissors, allow to sit out for about 20 minutes then wrap in wax paper.
