Is it possible to make Ina Garten's coffee meringue buttercream without a candy thermometer?

Recipe instructs to boil sugar / water until precisely 240 degrees Fahrenheit -- do I need a candy thermometer for this?

240 on a candy thermometer is the soft ball stage. This link explains: http://m.recipetips.com.... You could try this, but if you're not an experienced candy maker (candy making is tricky), you might want to get a thermometer.
