Maple Sugar Candy

March 4, 2014

It's maple sugaring time in the woods! With days above freezing, and nights below, Sugar maple trees are sending sweet sap up from their roots to wake up their buds above!

Here's a delicious way to enjoy maple snow candy with a grown-up's help. No pancakes necessary!

Hands-On Time: 10 minutes

Ready In: 15 minutes


1 cup real maple syrup

1/4 cup salted butter

Fresh snow, vanilla ice cream or shaved ice


1. Heat the syrup and butter in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring to avoid a boil-over. (Note: Heating syrup is strictly a parent's job.)

2. The mixture is ready 6 to 7 minutes after it boils (220 to 234 degrees on a candy thermometer). It should stiffen when dripped onto a plate.

3. Remove from heat and cool for 2 minutes before pouring over the snow, ice cream or ice. It cools so quickly that kids can taste it right away!
