Directions

  1. Cook sugars, molasses and water together until brittle over low heat, stirring frequently to prevent burning. Remove from heat, add butter, soda and salt, stirring just enough to mix. Pour into large greased pan and allow to stand until cool enough to handle. Butter fingers and pull until firm and light yellow. Stretch into a rope, twist and cut into 1" lengths.
