I remember making snow candy (and snow ice cream) when I was young in Massachusetts. I have never made it for my kids, though. So I did today!
Here’s what I did:
Snow Candy Recipe
1/2 cup pure maple syrup
2 tablespoons butter
Place both ingredients in a pan and bring to a boil. Boil for 5-7 minutes until mixtures reaches 225-230 degrees.
Place snow in pan or bowl, and drizzle hot syrup over snow. The snow cools the candy pretty quickly. As soon as the candy is cool enough to eat, it’s ready.
This candy is so yummy! It tastes like carmal! The recipe can be doubled, if you want to make a lot. I just made a small amount, in case my kids didn’t like it. Maple syrup is expensive, you know, and I didn’t want to waste it. They liked it, though, and wanted to know why I didn’t make more. lol
