Snow Candy

Materials
Note: It is important that you use pure maple syrup.  The maple syrup that we used for this activity can be purchased on Amazon here.

Method
  • Begin by preparing the snow.
  • Find a patch of clean, fresh snow that hasn't been contaminated by people or pets.  
  • Prepare the snow by pressing it down until it is firm.  The snow will essentially be acting as a baking sheet.
  • You could alternatively fill a shallow pan with fresh snow, pack it firmly, and head inside.  We wanted to make our candy outside because it feels more magical, but we still opted to fill a pan with snow and pack it firmly.
Preparing the Maple Syrup
  • Pour 2 cups of real maple syrup into a pot or sauce pan.
  • Place the pot on medium-to high heat and bring the syrup to a boil, stirring often.

  • Boil the syrup for 4-5 minutes, stirring constantly.
  • Then, remove the syrup from the stove and head outside!
Making the Snow Candy
  • Quickly pour the maple syrup onto your fresh, pressed snow before it has time to cool.

  • Then, take craft sticks and use them to form the syrup into candy on the sticks.

  • Roll the maple syrup on the sticks in the snow until the syrup is hard like a lollipop.

My family loves this activity!  We don't really like winter or the snow, but making snow candy is one winter tradition that we look forward to each year!  I hope your family loves it, too!
