Boil mixture without stirring until candy thermometer registers 266°F. Remove from heat; stir in vanilla and butter or margarine. Pour into prepared platter or pan. Let candy stand until cool enough to handle. Butter hands. Gather up candy; pull between hands until it becomes satiny and light in color. Pull into large strips; twist. Cut into 1 inch pieces with scissors. To store, wrap each candy in plastic wrap and place in air tight container.
