Molasses Taffy

1 can Eagle Brand Sweetened condensed milk
½ cup molasses
1/8 teaspoon salt

In heavy, shallow saucepan, combine sweetened condensed milk, molasses and salt. Cook over medium heat; stir constantly, to 235°F on candy thermometer or until a little drooped into very cold water forms a semi-firm ball which holds its shape when taken from the water. Immediately remove from heat. Pour into a buttered 8” square pan. Let stand until cool enough to handle. Pull taffy between buttered fingers until shiny and light colored. Twist into a rope about ¾” thick. Cut into 1” pieces with kitchen scissors. If desired, wrap taffy.

Makes ¾ pound.
