YIELD: 2 pans




  • Pack clean fresh snow into 2 13x9 pans until dense and smooth on top.
  • Keep snow or crushed ice outside or in freezer until ready to use.
  • Add maple syrup & butter to saucepan.
  • Boil uncovered on medium high heat until the syrup reaches 250 - 260 degrees.
  • Do not stir.
  • Remove from heat immediately and pour small strips of hot syrup on snow until pot is empty.
  • A second person (wearing winter gloves) should roll each hot strip onto a popsicle stick or fork and leave on the snow to cool.
  • Eat when cool.
  • The syrup is extremely hot - it can cause severe burns.
