When I was young I remember popping in video of The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh.  My sisters and I would watch it over and over.  The Hundred Acre Woods was a magical place and we loved to watch and see all the wonderful adventures that Pooh and his friends had.

Now if you know that silly old bear, you know he LOVES honey.  What better way to watch the movie then with some honey treats.  I decide to make some Honey Cream Taffy. Enjoy!

Grease a 15x10x1-in. pan with butter; place in the refrigerator.

In a large deep heavy saucepan, combine 1 cup cream and 2 cups honey. Add 1 cup sugar; cook over medium heat and stir with a wooden spoon until sugar is melted and mixture comes to a boil.

Cover pan with a tight-fitting lid and boil for 1 minute.

Taffy will lose its gloss and become light tan in color. Pull into ropes about 1/2 in. thick. This is a great time to get the kids to help.  They will love to pull the taffy.

    This looks fantastic! We had make taffy on our bucket list for the last two summers but every time I tried to find one we wanted to make it didn’t look appetizing or seemed hard. Thanks!

    I just found your site off of Pinterest! This recipe looks so amazing! Do you know how long it lasts? I’m thinking of sending some with my husband when he deploys next (he is in the Air Force) but I’d hate for him to open them up and them not be good anymore.
