3 quarts fresh snow
1/2 — 1 cup real maple syrup
Fill a large casserole dish or roasting pan with clean, fresh snow. Place it in the freezer or leave it outside if the temperature is below freezing. Pour maple syrup into a saucepan and heat it on medium-high until it reaches a temperature of 232° F (about 10 minutes — use a candy thermometer to measure). Stir the syrup constantly to make sure it doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pan. Remove the syrup from the heat and pour it over the snow in narrow strips. Allow it to cool for approximately two minutes. Pick the hardened syrup out of the snow and enjoy!
