Maple Snow Treats

Jan 11 2011

Kids are sledding, and everyone else is wondering when the snow will melt!  Great way to use fresh "WHITE" snow.
Maple-Snow Treats
Gather fresh snow from outside, take it inside (keep it from melting!) and boil some maple syrup.  It needs to be real maple syrup.

Add one tablespoon of butter and stir until melted. Keep stirring for 6-7 minutes so it doesn't boil over. (You'll know it's ready when the syrup mix starts to form hard balls when it drips off the spoon.) Remove from heat. While the syrup mixture is cooling for a few minutes, run outside and fill several plates or roasting pans with snow. Bring in and drizzle spoonfuls of the syrup mixture over the snow.
The result: taffy-like maple candy, just like they made in Laura Ingalls Wilder's "Little House in the Big Woods."

Oh yum! Thanks, Gabby! Since I was a kid I wanted to try this candy. The Little House books were a favorite of mine as a kid. (Okay, fine, they still are.)

C'mon snow!
