Great for sprinkling into pancakes or onto muffins/cookies and other treats. Be very careful not to burn yourself. Great when used in Mock Mcgriddle Use real maple syrup - pancake syrup is watered down and just wont crystallize the same! There is NO REAL USE for the water in the ingredients list, don't mix water in! I just needed two ingredients to post the recipe


  1. Pour syrup in pre-heated skillet over medium flame.
  2. When bubbly, stir constantly and cook another 4 minutes.
  3. Pour into silicone baking pan (never tried anything else, so use something else at your own caution shouldn't be enough to fill entirely, you need room to work it).
  4. before completely cooled (but no longer scalding!) gently stretch out to thin and add air into it.
  5. It should be a tacky taffy/candy like consistency at this time.
  6. Pull into a long thin rod (or a couple rods - no science here).
  7. Once hardened, crack and store in a air tight container - store in a cool place.
  8. Sprinkle on things as you please!

I also made this to use in Mock Mcgriddle and since this reminded me so much of snow taffy I mimicked the idea by placing my silicon pan in the fridge for about 5-7 minutes before using. When the syrup was ready I removed the pan from the fridge, held it a steep angle, and let a spoon drizzle the syrup in long thin strands down the length of the pan. Worked beautifully! Not as much work as I thought it would be. Made for New Kids on the Block, a tag game.

I made this so I could make Mock Mcgriddle. I don't think I can rank this correctly because I don't have a silicone pan. I made this as posted, but my "rods" didn't crystallize like I thought they should. Even after cooling over night, they were a little liquidy. I still used them in the Mock McGriddle Recipe though. I just couldn't sprinkle them...more like dripped them off my fingers into the batter. Made for New Kids on the Block tag.
