How to make maple syrup snow candy
Perhaps the most magical moment of winter is when the first snow comes. Not only is the sight of snow covering everything in a serene blanket a beautiful sight, but it also promises a simple and frosty one ingredient treat with it. My childhood has been marked by the greatest snowfalls, and I vividly remember spooning maple syrup onto the fresh snow and making chewy maple taffies.
To make these candies, you will need maple syrup, a popsicle stick, and a layer of snow.
First, boil your maple syrup. This will thicken your syrup and allow it to harden once it hits the snow. To test if the temperature is ready, take a spoonful of hot syrup and drop it into cold water. If it forms a ball in the water, it has been heated enough.
Next, drizzle it onto fresh, clean snow. Wait a couple of seconds until the maple syrup does not feel sticky to the touch.
Finally, take your popsicle stick and place it on top of your layer of maple syrup and roll it around the stick.
Take it off of the snow and enjoy!
