Making snow taffy is so easy and so much fun. All you need is maple syrup and snow. Normally its a backyard event but you can also bring the snow inside to make snow taffy. Be sure to have some snow-themed crafts for the kids to do while the syrup is cooking and keep the fun going with these outdoor activities in the snow!
1. Bring a shallow pan outside to gather snow from the backyard, make sure its fresh and white (stay away from the yellow snow;)- keep the snow in the freezer to make sure it doesn't melt while cooking the syrup.
2. Next I poured some maple syrup into a pot. Cooked it until it starts to bubble and you can feel it get a little thicker as you stir. Be very careful to keep little hands out of the way of hot bubbling syrup!!
3. Pour a little onto the snow, if it sinks to the bottom keep cooking. If it settles then you're ready to pour onto the snow and make your taffy.
You can eat it right out of the snow.... or twist onto sticks and enjoy!
Don't wait to long though because before you know it.... The snow is gone!
