We did exactly this! It was a delicious taffy! The problem was that I don't have a candy thermometer. I just cooked it for about 15 minutes which was obviously not long enough. I know now that I need one so I'll be heading out to get one before I take another stab at it.

The flavor was great though! Yay almond roca taffy!
