Boiled Taffy Frosting

A uniquely sweet frosting for your baked goods.

  • Servings:
  • Total Time: 25 Min
  • Main Ingredient: Molasses


  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup Grandma's® Original Molasses
  • 1/16 tsp. salt
  • 2 egg whites (beaten)
  • 1 tsp. flavoring


Thoroughly mix first four ingredients in a saucepan. Cook, without stirring, to firm-ball stage. Gradually beat hot syrup into egg whites, beaten stiff but not dry.
