You do the Hokey Pokey and you turn yourself around....

I like to make things with glob of sugar as much as I do with globs of butter...I found this super easy recipe that got really great reviews for something called Hokey Pokey.  Basically it's sugar, dark corn syrup, and baking soda.  How much easier could it get!

First you mix the sugar and the corn syrup:

You then melt it over medium heat until it reaches 300 degrees:

You take it off the heat and very quickly whisk in baking soda, which changes the consistency quite rapidly of this and it quickly becomes taffy like! So quickly pour it into a dish of some kind!

Then it turns to taffy and then it turns really hard and crunchy. 

Okay, now this recipe had really good reviews and I am not sure if all of the 20 people that liked this recipe were high or what, but it was literally one of the top 10 worst things I've ever put in my mouth! When it was taffy it was ok, it just tasted like sugar, but once it turned hard, it tasted like baking soda! Who wants to eat baking soda?! It was gross.  I took one bite and threw the whole thing out....But it's so easy maybe you should try it and report back to me what you think!
