Inside: Stuck inside on a snowy day? Try this easy to make maple syrup snow candy. The kids will love it! Yummy candy just like Laura Ingalls made.
Indiana has received a lot of snow these last couple weeks and we have had such a great time playing in it. Unfortunately, the weather has been horrible lately. It was -16 recently, way too cold to play outside. So I decided we could make Maple Syrup Snow Candy like Laura did in Little House on the Prairie. It’s very easy and kids think its great fun. All you need is Maple Syrup and snow. I just used the Kroger brand that I had.
When it gets to about 200 it will get really bubbly, that’s okay, just keep on stirring. Once it is heated to 250 degrees you will want to let it sit for about 2- 3 minutes. While it is cooling gather up some fresh snow in a bowl or plate. You can now use a spoon to make shapes with the maple syrup, or just pour it out little drops for a small round candy.
My son loves to make all different shapes with this. After a minute the candy should have harden. You can remove it from the snow and eat. We keep our extras in the fridge. This maple syrup snow candy is fun to make and eat! Looking for other recipes your kids will love? Check out these cake batter krispie treats.
Maple Syrup Snow Candy
- 1/2 Cup Maple Syrup
Put 1/2 cup of maple syrup in a small pot. Heat the maple syrup to 250 degrees, stirring constantly so it doesn’t burn or boil over. Let it cool for around 2-3 minutes. While it is cooling, pile clean snow in a plate or bowl. Then use a spoon to drizzle designs or letters over the snow. The snow will harden it very quickly. Remove the candy from the snow and store in the fridge.
