Snow Taffy

Boil together 3 c. sugar, 1/2 c. whipping cream, and 1/2 c. cereal cream, until it reaches "soft ball" stage.... (112 - 115deg. C or 234 - 240 deg F) -- stir constantly to prevent scorching.... pour in lines onto clean snow and roll up onto popsicle sticks or skewers and enjoy. We found if it was eaten right away, it was chewy and taffy-ish, but the ones we covered with foil and ate later were almost like a white fudge! But VERY VERY sweet and rich! I'm sure you could create variations on this by adding peppermint extract and green food colouring, or..... almond extract or orange or strawberry or rootbeer or..???? endless flavouring possibilities, I'd guess, as the cream-y base would be easy to enhance!
