Molasses Taffy

All little children like this, and it is easily made. To two cups of

molasses, add one cup of sugar, two tablespoons of butter, and boil

until brittle when dropped in cold water. Add then one-fourth

teaspoonful of soda, stir through and pour on buttered tins. When cool

enough to handle pull to a light color, cut in sticks, and lay on oiled

paper to harden. This is good flavored with a few drops of peppermint,

but do not get in too much.
