  • With a rubber spatula, gently fold edges of hot candy into the center to soften. Continue folding edges into the center until the candy is cool enough to handle. With well-buttered fingers, form candy into a ball, then begin stretching and pulling. Continue pulling and stretching until candy becomes porous and satiny, about 5 minutes.
