Step 6: Watch Temperature with Candy Thermometer- Bring to 270 Degrees

Picture of Watch Temperature with Candy Thermometer- Bring to 270 Degrees
Here is where my first mistake occurred and I uttered, "uh-oh". The temperature was slowly climbing and I felt like it wasn't getting high enough fast enough so I cranked the heat a little. The temperature previously was slowly going up like 50 degrees every 20 minutes and after I cranked the heat it immediately jumped over the soft-crack stage which is 270 degrees. I am sure that over the soft-crack stage is too high for taffy if you want it to be soft.
