Maple Snow Recipe

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.

Maple Snow RecipeI was so happy and pleasantly surprised with the way this snowy dessert turned out!

Preparing snow for maple syrupBasically you gather a batch of clean snow from an area that hasn’t been traveled by humans or animals.

If you’re making maple syrup taffy, you’ll pack the snow down. But for maple snow, don’t pack it.


Boiling maple syrup for maple snow dessertBoil pure maple syrup over medium low heat until it reaches 240 degrees.


Making maple snow with syrupImmediately pour the syrup over the snow. The syrup is thin since it’s been heated.

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.

  1. Jennifer,

  2. A Maritime (Canada) tradition although maple taffy on the snow is more popular. I think I’d like this idea better though. I love maple syrup on vanilla ice cream too.
