      Kool-Aid Taffy is fun to make with the kids and can be made in any flavor.

      2 1⁄2 cups sugar
      3 tablespoons cornstarch
      1 cup corn syrup
      1 1⁄3 cups water
      2 tablespoons butter
      1⁄2 teaspoon salt
      1 (1/4 ounce) packet unsweetened Kool-Aid powdered drink mix, any flavor

      Butter two large cookie sheets, then set them aside.

      In a 2 qt. saucepan, combine sugar and cornstarch.

      Add corn syrup, water, butter, and salt.

      Mix well before heating.

      Bring mixture to boil on medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until it reaches 250 degrees Fahrenheit on candy thermometer (hard ball stage).

      Remove from heat, and immediately stir in the Kool-Aid powder.

      Quickly pour onto prepared cookie sheets.

      Let stand a few minutes, until cool enough to handle with your hands.

      Grab a few helpers to pull the taffy with buttered hands until the taffy lightens its color and becomes firmer.

      Roll taffy into bite-sized pieces.

      Wrap individually in squares of wax paper.
