While most of our country is still in the iron grip of Old Man Winter’s clutch and everyone is bemoaning the extreme cold and excessive snow, I begrudgingly tried to enjoy a little bit of winter today. In an old issue of Country Living magazine I found a recipe for maple syrup taffy. It was a lot of syrup and I thought it might be on the sickening sweet side instead of the pleasingly sweet side. So I added my own little twist and turned it into a Maple Snow Recipe.
If you’re making maple syrup taffy, you’ll pack the snow down. But for maple snow, don’t pack it.
It will run through the snow quickly. You can stir it up to mix it throughout the snow.
If you were making taffy and packed the snow, the syrup would pool up on top, get chewy, and then get hard.
Not everyone likes eating snow, but I’ve always been a snow eater and haven’t died yet.
My grand babies will be here next weekend and I plan to make this Maple Snow Recipe with them.
