Bring to boil, and cook until a small amount of mixture forms a hard ball when dropped in very cold water (254°F. on a candy thermometer).
Pour onto a large buttered platter.
As edges cool, turn mixture toward center with a spatula.
When just cool enough to handle, make a hollow in center of taffy and add a few drops of flavoring.
Gather up taffy and pull until light, using a little butter to grease hands while pulling.
Twist into a long rope and cut into pieces with scissors.
Wrap each piece in wax paper and store in a cool dry place.
