If you follow me on instagram, it's pretty obvious I love the snow. Since moving to New England, I've learned to really embrace winter. With the right clothes, dare I say, winter is actually really fun! It opens doors to so many new things to do, and I tend to love the cozy feeling that comes with the colder months.
During our trip to Quebec last year, a place that truly embraces winter, we picked up one of their favorite little winter treats - maple sugar on snow or maple taffy - and we immediately added it to our "why we love winter" list.
If you are in New England experiencing this lovely blizzard today, I do believe making this is mandatory!
WHAT YOU NEED:
- Small sauce pan
- Popsicle or craft sticks
- Something clean and sturdy to put the snow in (baking sheets work!)
- Maple Syrup
- Candy Thermometer
- CLEAN snow
- Pack snow into your container of choice and make it nice and smooth
- Heat maple syrup until boiling and until your candy thermometer reads 235 degrees. It's super hot. Be very careful!
- Pour your maple syrup in a line on your snow (it helps if you have a little spout - I did not here, and created a more "less than perfect" look. haha)
- Take your popsicle stick and roll the sugar up.
- Enjoy the sugar high!
