Ingredients
  Sugar 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Cornstarch 1 Tablespoon
  White corn syrup 2⁄3 Cup (10.67 tbs)
  Butter 1 Tablespoon
  Water 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Salt 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Food coloring 6 Drop
  Flavoring extracts 3 Teaspoon
Directions

Mix sugar and cornstarch in a saucepan.
Stir in corn syrup, butter, water, and salt.
Cook over a moderate heat until mixture reaches 254° or until a few drops tested in cold water form a ball which holds its shape.
Remove from heat, add a few drops of food coloring and flavoring extract, and pour onto a buttered platter.
Cool until it can be handled comfortably.
Butter your hands and pull the taffy until it is light in color and firm enough to hold a shape.
Stretch into a roll about 1 inch in diameter and snip off bits with kitchen shears.
Wrap each piece in wax paper tute equal amounts of cognac and peach brandy for the bourbon.
